The American Petroleum Institute (API) reported on Tuesday a draw in crude oil inventories of 9.517 million barrels for the week ending September 11.
Analysts had predicted an inventory draw of 1.271-million barrels.
In the previous week, the API reported a draw in crude oil inventories of 2.970 million barrels, after analysts had predicted a smaller draw of 1.335 million barrels.
Oil prices were trading up on Tuesday afternoon before the API’s data release, but the rising prices come only after a brutal trading day in the day prior when oil prices sunk to their lowest levels since June.
