Oil Drops as U.S. Stockpile Report Counters Supply Risk in Gulf
Wednesday, 15 May 2019 12:45 WIB | ENERGY |Minyak WTIbrent oilOil,Crude Oil

Oil fell as an industry report signaling a jump in U.S. stockpiles eased concerns over a supply crunch, after a drone attack in Saudi Arabia had highlighted the vulnerability of the country™s energy infrastructure.

Futures in New York pared a loss of as much as 1.1% after closing up 1.2% on Tuesday. The American Petroleum Institute was said to report an 8.63 million-barrel increase in crude inventories last week, compared with a forecast of 1.2 million barrel decline in a Bloomberg survey, before government data due Wednesday. The Yemeni rebel attack on two Saudi pumping stations forced the world™s top oil exporter to temporarily shut its main cross-country crude link.

West Texas Intermediate crude for June delivery fell 45 cents, or 0.7%, to $61.33 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange at 12:46 p.m. in Singapore. It dropped as much as 66 cents earlier after closing 74 cents higher on Tuesday.

Brent for July settlement was down 28 cents, or 0.4%, to $70.96 a barrel on the London-based ICE Futures Europe exchange after advancing 1.4% on Tuesday. The global benchmark contract is trading at a $9.44 premium to WTI.
