In New York, October delivery crude futures tumbled 0.16% being worth $49.22 a barrel. At the same time in London Brent futures sank 0.24% trading at $55.03 a barrel.
In August, Chinese refineries managed to process 6.5% more crude than in 2016 at 47.12 million metric tons because domestic crude output went down 3.1% hitting 5.96 million metric tons.
