Brent crude was down 27 cents, or 0.5%, at $51.87 a barrel at around 0630 GMT. In the previous session, it settled down 0.4%. WTI crude was down 21 cents, or 0.4%, at $48.96 a barrel, after falling 0.4% yesterday. Well, Saudi Arabia have increased their burden of cuts to keep OPEC afloat; they are acting a bit like that school friend who always took the blame for your group of friends' misdemeanours. They confirmed that Saudi state oil company Aramco will cut allocations to its customers worldwide in September by at least 520,000 barrels per day, which helps take out the sting of increased production from non-agreement members as well as helping those countries struggling to keep production levels downs like Iraq. The API have predicted a sizeable draw in crude levels at -7.84 million barrels, with products looking less bullish at +1.5 million barrels for gasoline, and -0.2 million barrels for distillates. But, as ever, take these figures with a very large pinch of salt - kind of on the level of licking the edge of the dead sea. It also seems that the news outlets have dusted off that news story entitled 'Oil falls as doubts over OPEC linger'. We are currently rising in price on hope, but when, or not, will reality bite?
