U.S. crude prices were boosted on forecasts that inventories at the U.S. oil delivery hub in Cushing, Oklahoma fell 1.8 million barrels, citing energy information provider Genscape.
The world’s biggest oil exporter expects its crude shipments to drop by roughly 100,000 barrels per day in August as it works to ensure it does not push oil into the market beyond customers’ needs, the kingdom’s OPEC governor Adeeb Al-Aama said.
“Despite the international oil markets being well balanced in the third quarter, there will still be substantial stock draws due to robust demand and seasonality factors in the second half,” Al-Aama said in a statement. He also said concerns that Saudi Arabia and its partners are moving to substantially oversupply the market are “without basis”.
Investors had scaled back expectations for a global oil supply shortage in recent weeks as Libya resumed exports and the U.S. softened its stance on Iranian crude buyers.
