With a range up extension and the highest price since the September high, the crude oil market continues to benefit from a combination of reflation, leveling US rig operating counts and lastly because of fresh supply-side threats in Iraq. An issue that should undermined crude oil prices going forward is news that South Korean company would import 6.5 million barrels of crude oil from the US between November and January of next year, as that highlights an ongoing outlook for surplus US oil.
