Crude goes down in Asia with API estimates ahead

Crude goes down in Asia with API estimates ahead

On Wednesday, oil prices sagged in Asia, with a first weekly data look at the consequences of Hurricane Harvey ahead with industry estimates made by the American Petroleum Institute as well as caution in the financial markets because Hurricane Irma is making its way to Florida.

October delivery crude futures tumbled 0.32% in New York being worth $48.55 a barrel. At the same time Brent futures tumbled 0.49% in London, demonstrating an outcome of $53.12 a barrel.

Overnight, crude futures jumped because Gulf Coast refineries started restarting operations, reacting to the disruptions provoked by Hurricane Harvey the previous week.

Crude prices kept paring losses sustained the previous week, after pipelines, crude refineries and transportation routes across Louisiana and Texas started restarting operation, thus improving American refinery capacity, right after flooding because of Hurricane Harvey shut down approximately a quarter of refinery capacity the previous week.
