Brent crude futures LCOc1 hit $56.40 a barrel, soaring 0.3%, from their last close, thus demonstrating their highest outcome since early March.
If Wednesday's price rise hold, they would boast the seventh straight daily surge. It would surpass a six-day bull-run from August 2016, though the price leap then was 17.5% vs. a 6% soar in the current rally of consecutive surges.

Market participants stressed that the price leaps turned to be a direct result of reports that Saudi Arabia had asked other crude producers that it was eager to extend a coordinated output cut beyond the first half of 2017.
