SINGAPORE, June 21 (Reuters) -Middle East benchmarks Dubai and Oman slipped for a third consecutive session on Friday, while Murban premium inched higher in contrast.

Meanwhile, Taiwan's state refiner CPC Corp issued its monthly tender to buy sweet crude for September delivery. The tender will close on June 24 with offers valid for two days.
