LONDON, Nov 22 (Reuters) - North Sea Forties crude differentials rose on Friday, hitting their highest since June, supported by a bid from Total.
* January loading programmes will be issued next week. The Forties schedule is due on Thursday, a trade source said.
* The physical crude oil market and the structure of the oil futures curve have rarely been more aligned over the past few years than in recent weeks, telling a counterintuitive story of a tight oil market next year.
* No deals.
* Forties: Total bid at dated Brent plus $1.40 for loading Dec. 15-21. (Reporting by Shadia Nasralla Editing by David Goodman )
