MTECHTIPS;- Crude Oil Prices Remain Higher as Optimism Dominates

MTECHTIPS-Crude oil prices remained higher on Thursday, as optimism dominated markets following news of a far larger-than-expected decline in U.S. stockpiles and the potential extension of output cuts by the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries. The U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude November contract was up 15 cents or about 0.30% at $50.13 a barrel by 9:20 a.m. ET (13:20 GMT), off a two-week low of $49.85 hit overnight. Prices remained supported after the U.S. Energy Information Administration reported on Wednesday that crude oil inventories fell by 6.023 million barrels in the week ended September 29, compared to expectations for a decline of around 756,000 barrels. However, traders were disappointed to learn that U.S. crude oil exports jumped to 1.98 million bpd last week, surpassing the 1.5 million bpd record set the previous week. Elsewhere, Brent oil for November delivery on the ICE Futures Exchange in London was up 39 cents or about 0.70% at $56.19 a barrel, off the previous session’s two-week lows of $55.39. The commodity benefited from comments by Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday saying that a pledge by OPEC and other producers, including Russia, to cut oil output to boost prices could be extended to the end of 2018, instead of expiring in March 2018
