A pick up in United States oil production has contributed to the imbalance in the market but there were signs last week that American crude inventories had fallen. Moreover, distillate stockpiles dipped 1.6 million barrels, compared to analysts expected 1 million drop.

Calling on U.S. to join in the rebalancing of global oil market, OPEC said "a large part of the excess supply overhang contained in floating storage has been reduced and the improvement in the world economy should help support oil demand".
