June 8 (Reuters) – U.S. crude oil exports reached 3.24 million barrels per day in April compared with 2.61 million bpd the March, foreign trade data from the U.S. Census Bureau showed on Tuesday.

Exports to Netherlands were 425,000 bpd. Exports to India were 370,000 bpd. Exports to Canada were 354,000 bpd.

U.S. Census’s foreign trade oil data is published weeks earlier than closely watched U.S. Energy Information Administration trade figures. The EIA, which bases its numbers on the Census data, will release its monthly crude figures at the end of the month.
