Crude slumps in Asia as American stocks report surprise soar

On Wednesday, oil declined in Asia because doubts over OPEC output cuts starts spreading and the American Petroleum Institute posted a leap in American supplies of crude.

Tuesday’s American crude inventories estimates from the American Petroleum Institute demonstrated a leap of 1.6 million barrels by July 14 versus a sudden sag of 3.740 million barrels. Additionally, inventories of distillates sank 2.9 million barrels. On Wednesday, the market will look to reports from the Energy Information Administration.

In New York, August delivery crude futures sank 0.15% during morning Asia trade, showing $46.33 a barrel. Meanwhile, in London, Brent futures tumbled 0.12% trading at $48.78 a barrel.

American drillers managed to add two crude rigs by July 14, thus bringing the total to 765, as Baker Hughes reported last Friday, with on average five fresh rigs added for each of the previous five weeks.
