Oil prices continue to rise despite the fact that the American Petroleum Institute (API) has reported an excess of expected oil reserves. According to the report, oil reserves increased by 4.2 million barrels which indicates that the Ministry of Energy report will be worse than market expectations. Within the US Ministry of Energy the expected reserves increase is 2.5 million barrels. The actual data will be published at 16:00 GMT.
The news of interruptions in energy supplies from Libya and US sanctions against the Russian energy company Rosneft are also increasing the oil prices. These events can significantly affect the level of oil supply in the world market. Libya previously supplied about 1.2 million barrels per day. According to experts, these volumes are now reduced to 0.4 million barrels.
