Global oil prices are off highs on assurances of sufficient supply to compensate for a fall in Iranian exports, along with a surprising increase in U.S. oil inventories, said Singapore's DBS Bank in its daily market report on Thursday.
The market on Thursday was also influenced towards the bearish side by Genscape forecasting that storage at the Cushing, Oklahoma hub had increased 1.95 million barrels between April 26 and 30, which comes on the heels of earlier news that USA stockpiles last week rose by 9.9 million barrels to 470.6 million barrels, as production hit a record high of 12.3 million bpd.

Indian media reported in April that both countries had recently set up a joint working group on energy.
But Turkey has been significantly reducing its reliance on Iranian imports since the start of the USA sanctions waiver.
The Trump administration was equally silent about what action it might take if any of the three countries continues to purchase Iranian oil after Thursday, with no statements on the subject issued during the day by the departments of State or Treasury.
