Crude rises on tighter American market and Middle East tensions

On Wednesday, crude ascended, backed by a dip in American crude inventories as well as worries that tensions in the Middle East could affect supplies.

Brent crude futures LCOc1 hit $58.27, soaring 0.7% from their previous close.

American West Texas Intermediate crude futures CLc1 reached $52.08 a barrel, tacking on 0.4%.

Market participants told that prices were underpinned by a sag in American crude inventories and also deep concerns that combat actions in Iraq along with mounting tensions between Iran and America could disrupt supplies.

American crude inventories sank by 7.1 million barrels by October 13 hitting 461.4 million barrels, as the American Petroleum Institute reported on Tuesday.

Official American fuel inventory data is expected to be released by the Energy Information Administration on Wednesday.

Middle East tensions also contributed to a tightening American market, also pushing crude up.
