MTECHTIPS:-Crude oil settles at 4-week high ahead of inventories

MTECHTIPS-Oil prices settled higher for a third day in a row on Wednesday, as demand for crude returned from restarted Gulf Coasts refineries following disruptions to U.S. refining capacity due to Storm Harvey. On the New York Mercantile Exchange crude futures for October delivery rose 1% to settle at $49.16 a barrel, while on London’s Intercontinental Exchange, Brent added 1.54% to trade at $54.20 a barrel. Crude oil settled at a four-week peak as concerns over a big drop in crude demand subsided following an uptick in the number of U.S. refineries restarting operations after Harvey knocked out more than quarter of refining capacity last week. Meanwhile the development of Storm Irma, which made landfall in the Caribbean earlier on Wednesday, continued to garner investor attention, as the Category 5 storm could knock out other refineries and add to concerns over fuel shortages. Also supporting the rise in oil prices were suggestions that Russia and Saudi Arabia would be open to extending their output cut agreement. Russian energy minister, Alexander Novak said Tuesday that that representatives from both Saudi Arabia and Russia had talked about an extension but that no specific decisions had yet been reached
