Solid Gold Berjangka | Oil extended a rally after an industry report pointed to a drawdown in US crude inventories, ahead of an OPEC+ meeting at which the group is expected to affirm current supply cuts.

Futures for global benchmark Brent rose toward $90 a barrel after closing at the highest level since October on Tuesday. West Texas Intermediate was above $85. The American Petroleum Institute reported nationwide stockpiles fell by more than 2 million barrels last week, according to people familiar with the figures. The estimates also showed declines in gasoline and distillate inventories.

OPEC and its allies are due to review crude markets and supply policy at an online gathering on Wednesday, and officials predict they’ll keep the overall strategy unchanged. Still, there could be tough words for countries that are exceeding their assigned limits.

Crude has pushed higher this year, with Ukrainian attacks on Russian energy infrastructure and Middle East tensions supporting prices. OPEC’s curbs have been tightening the market, even though some members have stalled on delivering their agreed-upon cuts in full and as Russian exports surge.

Brent for June settlement rose 0.3% to $89.21 a barrel at 8:03 a.m. in Singapore.

WTI for May delivery gained 0.3% to $85.43 a barrel.
