According to Chinese oil demand data that was released by customs yesterday, the country imported 8.6m barrels per day of crude oil during the 1H 2017, up 13.8% from last year. It is now the world's largest crude importer, ahead of the US. But this demand could be due to Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR)-related, while in the US, production is at record levels and this would mean a need for lesser imports.

Brent rose to a high of 48.53 before closing close to that level. Prior to the upward retracement, oil prices had fallen to the day's low on a report released by the IEA, which stated that the oversupply situation could be extended due to rising levels of production globally and also due to non-compliance (78% in June) and exemptions on the parts of some OPEC members. The so-called rebalancing is likely to happen later likely than earlier.

Oil rig count data due for release during US trade today before we head into the weekend.
