Oil Prices Rise On Talk That OPEC Could Extend Supply Cut
Oil prices rose on Tuesday on expectations that an OPEC-led production cut to prop up the market could be extended, while strong demand would also work to slowly erode a global fuel supply overhang. Prices for front-month Brent crude futures, the international benchmark for oil, were at $51.86 per barrel at 0401 GMT, up 24 cents, or 0.5 percent, from their last close. U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were up 13 cents, or 0.3 percent, at $48.35 a barrel.
The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), together with other producers including Russia, has pledged to cut its output by almost 1.8 million barrels per day (bpd) between January and June in an effort to prop up prices and rein in a global supply glut that has dogged markets for almost three years.
