U.S. oil futures post biggest weekly rise since June
Saturday, 7 December 2019 03:13 WIB | ENERGY |Minyak WTI

Oil futures settled higher on Friday, with U.S. prices up more than 7% for the week to mark their highest weekly percentage climb since June.

Prices got a lift after the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies announced an agreement to cut production by an additional 500,000 barrels a day starting in January. Including the 1.2 million barrels in reductions under the current pact, that will bring total output cuts to 1.7 million barrels a day from October 2018 levels.

Even so, analysts said concerns surrounding a slowdown in oil demand remain. Meanwhile, Baker Hughes reported a seventh straight weekly decline in the number of active U.S. rigs drilling for oil.

January West Texas Intermediate oil rose 77 cents, or 1.3%, to settle at $59.20 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. For the week, the U.S. benchmark rose 7.3%, the biggest such rise since the week ended June 21, according to FactSet data.
