Oil Prices Drop After Big Drop in Crude Inventories

Oil prices fell on Thursday after a large fall in US crude inventories.

Similar to the US Crude Oil WTI Futures which were down by 0.4% to $55.58 this morning, the International Brent Oil Futures also dropped by 0.6% to trade at $59.56.

Oil prices received support earlier in the day as it gained more than 1% following data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA) that revealed that inventories of US crude fell by 10.03 million barrels for the week ended August 23rd.

The large draw in crude supplies came as imports fell by about 1.51 million BPD.

The data came after industry group American Petroleum Institute revealed that the US crude reserve fell by 11.1 million barrels on Tuesday.

In addition, the trade conflict between the US and China keeps on affecting the oil markets after the US Treasury Secretary, Steven Mnuchin declined to confirm whether a planned meeting with Chinese officials in September would still take place.

Low oil demand due to escalating trade war between the US and China have sent oil prices down about 15% since their April highs.
