TABLE-India Reliance Sept oil imports up 3.4 pct from Aug - trade sources

    NEW DELHI, Oct 11 (Reuters) - India's Reliance Industries, owner of the world's
biggest refining complex, imported 3.4 percent more oil in September compared with August,
according to data from shipping and industry sources.
    The sources declined to be identified as they were not authorised to speak to the media.
    In September, Reliance imported about 2 million barrels of Iranian oil, the data showed.
Reliance plans to halt imports of Iranian oil in October or November, sources told Reuters.

    Reliance did not respond to a request from Reuters for comment on the purchase of Iranian
oil in September.
    The private refiner shipped in about 27 percent of its oil imports from Latin America in
September compared with 32 percent in August, while the share of Middle East grades in its
overall purchases rose to 48 from 41 percent.
    The share of African grades in its overall purchases jumped to 19 percent from about 10
percent in August.
    Following are details of Reliance's crude and condensate imports. Volumes are in 1,000
barrels per day (bpd):
