Oil prices rise on supply deficit concerns

Singapore, Sept. 19 (BNA): Oil prices rose on Tuesday for a fourth consecutive session.


Global oil benchmark Brent crude futures were up 41 cents, or 0.43%, to $94.84 a barrel by 0751 GMT. After breaching $1 gains, U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude futures were up 92 cents, or 1.01%, to $92.40.


Prices have gained for three consecutive weeks, and both benchmarks are around 10-month highs, Reuters reported.


U.S. oil output from top shale-producing regions is on track to fall to 9.393 million barrels per day (bpd) in October, the lowest level since May 2023, the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) said on Monday. It will have fallen for three months in a row.


Those estimates come after Saudi Arabia and Russia this month extended a combined supply cuts of 1.3 million bpd to the end of the year.


Prices are being supported by concerns over supply tightness and technical factors, said Kelvin Wong, a senior market analyst at OANDA in Singapore.


“(There has been) a persistent short-term uptrend seen in the WTI crude oil futures where prior dips had been held by its 5-day moving average since 29 August…(which is) now acting as a key short-term support at around $89.90 per barrel,” Wong noted.
