Crude prices rally on anticipated extension of output cuts

Crude prices rally on anticipated extension of output cuts

On Monday, crude grew, with Brent staying above $60 per barrel, following hopes that an OPEC-led output cut due to expire in March 2018 would be prolonged. However, surging exports from Iraq suppressed crude prices.

Brent crude futures hit $60.73 a barrel, gaining 0.48% from their previous settlement and approaching their highest outcome since July 2015. The prices have jumped more than 36% since from 2017-minimums marked in June.

American West Texas Intermediate futures soared 0.3% reaching $54.06 a barrel.

With firm compliance to OPEC's output curbs already backing the commodity, comments from the Saudi Arabian Crown Prince who suggested the output cut agreement should be prolonged contributed to revenues.

OPEC is expected to meet at its headquarters in Vienna, on November 30.

Market participants told that a 900,000 bpd export capacity leap from Iraq's southern ports to about 4.6 million bpd had actually prevented Brent from surging further.
