U.S. oil benchmark rises as supply data show surprisingly large drawdown

Oil prices rose on Wednesday, helped by U.S. inventory data showing a decline in stockpiles. West Texas Intermediate crude for February climbed 20 cents, or 0.4%, to $57.76 a barrel, setting the contract on track for its highest settlement in over a week. Meanwhile, Brent for the same month -0.02% added 2 cents to $63.82 a barrel. The moderate gains on Wednesday came after the American Petroleum Institute late on Tuesday said U.S. oil inventories dropped by 5.2 million barrels last week, a bigger drawdown than expected. Official data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration is due on Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. Eastern Time.

Brent was also supported by ongoing delivery outages in the North Sea due to the defective Forties pipeline. Ineos, the pipeline’s operator, said earlier this week that the repair is expected to take two to four weeks from when the outage started on Dec. 11.
