Oil prices added because drilling activity in America for new crude output went down for the first time since January, losing by two rigs.
American crude futures went down 9% during the second quarter, which concluded in June, while Brent futures sagged 9.3%. It extended first-quarter dips for the contracts.
Notwithstanding the sag in American drilling activity, the overall rig count turned to be more than double the 341 rigs in the same week the previous year, according to energy services company Baker Hughes Inc.
