Crude oil is trading at 104.00 this morning surging on Wednesday evening after the release of the official EIA inventory. WTI oil prices gained by more than 1.5 percent in yesterday’s trading session and touched a one month high after the EIA report released last night showed large draw in commercial crude stocks, while renewed fighting in Libya that kept output low boosted Brent prices. Explosions and fighting were heard in Tripoli on Wednesday, two days after gunmen stormed parliament amid a surge in violence in the OPEC member country. National output in Libya edged higher to 230,000 barrels per day (bpd), up from 210,000 bpd on Monday but still a fraction of the 1.6 million bpd the country produced before the 2011 war. Two large oilfields were still shut 10 days after the government said protests there were over.
