  • Oil prices rebounded on Tuesday on expectations that inventories in the United States may decline, and that OPEC may raise output.

    Brent crude futures was at $75.59 a barrel on Tuesday.

    U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude was at $65.19 a barrel.

    The Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) is due to meet in Vienna on June 22 .

    It meets to decide whether the group and non-OPEC producers, including Russia, will raise output to ease concerns over potential supply shortfalls from Iran and Venezuela.

    Over the weekend, OPEC and non-OPEC Arab oil ministers agreed on the need for continued cooperation to balance global supply, Kuwait’s state news agency KUNA reported.

    Global oil supply has tightened with the OPEC-led production cuts that began in early 2017.

    Crude stocks in the United States, the world’s biggest oil consumer were forecast to fall about 2.5 million barrels on average in the week ended June 1, according to five analysts polled ahead of the reports.

    In March, U.S. crude output rose to 10.47 million barrels per day, the highest on record, according to a monthly report by the Energy Information Administration (EIA).

    Industry group American Petroleum Institute (API) is due to release its data for last week’s U.S. crude oil inventories at 2030 GMT on Tuesday.
