These revisions become effective from 6am in the morning every day.

GLOBAL OIL PRICES

Oil prices rose on Friday on continued supply constraints from the US but were headed for a flat finish on the week as coal and gas prices eased, curbing fuel-switching which had stoked demand for oil products for power.

Oil and gas market reached multi-year highs earlier this week due to apprehensions on coal and gas shortages in China, India and Europe. “Weaker natural gas and coal prices would have taken away some of the support for the oil market,” ING commodities strategists said in a note.

While Brent crude went up 24 cents or 0.3 per cent to $84.85 per barrel, US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) climbed 20 cents or 0.2 per cent to $82.70 per barrel.
