Oil prices continue to rise in Asia on Monday, but this improvement could be curtailed by the impact of increased US production on the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) to reduce supply in the markets.
The price of light sweet crude for March delivery rose 78 cents to 62.46 dollars in electronic exchanges in Asia. The price of the European Brent crude for Nissan shipments rose 52 cents to $ 65.36. The highest level was the highest level in three years in January, driven by the implementation of the agreement reached by OPEC members and non-members of the cartel, including Russia, to limit production. The price of Brent exceeded the psychological threshold of $ 70, while the price of light oil $ 65. But the steady increase in US rock oil production and the rise in US crude inventories have slowed this momentum. Price Indicators[/rtl]
