Crude prices were backed because OPEC told crude markets were rapidly rebalancing after a long period
OPEC has made vigorous effort to reduce output in 2017 just to stop years of overproduction, which generated an enormous supply overhang.
Short-term crude price support was also received from America, where up to 85% of US Gulf of Mexico crude output or just 1.49 million barrels a day, turned to be offline because of Hurricane Nate. Crude companies evacuated employees from Gulf platforms and reduced output ahead of the natural disaster.
