    Crude Prices Flat as Oversupply Worries Persist



    Oil prices were almost unchanged in early Friday Asian trading after pulling back in the prior session, pressured by the ongoing global oversupply concerns despite the bigger-than-anticipated drawdown in U.S. crude stockpiles.

    Brent crude futures rose by 1 cent and traded at $51.91 per barrel. Meanwhile, the U.S. WTI crude traded up 3 cents or 0.1 percent at $48.62 per barrel.

    Oil prices hit a two-and-a-month high during the previous session, but ended down around 1.5 percent, with the U.S. benchmark falling back below the $50-per-barrel mark due to persistent global glut worries.

    ANZ bank said crude prices failed to maintain its recent gains, as the anxious market began to question the recent decline in stockpiles. The supply fundamentals also affected prices, with data indicating Libyan production in July reaching its highest level for the year.

    Official government data showed crude stockpiles in the U.S. steeply declined by 6.5 million barrels in the latest week, as refiners bolstered processing due to solid demand.

    But there are persisting worries whether enough crude will be used to end a global oversupply after OPEC posted another increase in the producer cartel's production, despite lifting its outlook for demand in 2018.

    Oil Steady, Buoyed by Firm Demand and Drop in Inventories



    Oil prices were steady on Monday, buoyed by firm demand and a fall in inventories. However, it remains under pressure due to high output.

    U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures CLc1 stood at $48.85 per barrel, higher by three cents.

    According to Anz bank, prices are supported by a report from the International Energy Agency (IEA) which stated that crude oil stockpiles were now below 2016 levels. Stocks continue to be at 219 million barrels above a 5-year average, which is a level that OPEC is aiming for with its output cuts, the IEA said.

    The agency increased its 2017 demand growth forecast to 1.5 million barrels per day (bpd) from 1.4 million bpd in its earlier monthly report and said it sees demand to grow further by 1.4 million bpd in 2017.

    Shale production in the biggest U.S. oilfield should increase by as much as 300,000 bpd by December, according to industry forecasts.

    Drillers added three rigs looking for new oil in the week to Aug. 11 which brings the overall count up to 768, the most since April 2015, according to General Electric Co's Baker Hughes energy services company.

    VALE: Company To Increase Corporate Governance Level Sooner Than Expected



    The chief executive officer of the Brazilian miner Vale, Fabio Schvartsman, said that the company could enter the Novo Mercado stock market segment - which means that the firm will follow the highest standards of corporate governance available in Brazil - sooner than expected.

    "We do not have the date yet, but we will do everything at reach to make it fast. It is possible that it will happen later this year," the executive said in a teleconference with reporters.

    His statement came after Vale's stockholders agreed to convert 84.4% of the company's preferred shares into common shares. According to Schvartsman, nobody expected such high level of commitment to the share conversion process.

    Now, Vale is reviewing what to do with the remaining preferred shares. One possibility would be to hold a new shareholder meeting to convert those stocks. Schvartsman also reiterated that it would not be necessary to use company money to buy the shares, since shareholders who did not join the conversion did not do so due to regulatory issues, such as index funds abroad.

    Vale needed a conversion rate of at least 54.09% to proceed with its corporate restructuring and for changes in corporate governance, such as those required to enter the Novo Mercado segment.

    After the conversion, Valepar - Vale's controlling shareholder - will merge with and into the mining company. Valepar is formed by Bradesco, Mitsui, BNDESPar and state pension funds, such as Previ. In this way, shareholders linked to the government will have smaller shares.

    Asked about government participation in the company, Schvartsman said that this issue is "100% solved" and that government interference in the company "is a page turned." "Not that there was interference, but the government is very welcome as a minority shareholder," he said.

    UK Employment Notched Record Peak but Pay Remains Under Pressure



    British employment reached a record peak, but workers' wages are still being squeezed as productivity drops.

    Official statistics that were recently published signified the resilience of the UK jobs markets and its constant underlying problem. The workforce has been less productive than it was a decade ago, while employers are reluctant to increase salaries.

    In the three months to the end of June, another 125,000 people have found jobs. This means that 75.1 percent of all people between the ages of 16 and 64 were in work, the highest employment rate since records started in 1971.

    The jobless rate dropped from 4.5 to 4.4 percent in the quarter, the lowest marked rate since 1975.

    The majority of new jobs were full-time, while the count of people on insecure zero-hours contracts fell by 20,000 to 883,000.

    The productivity of Britain's workers dropped 0.1 percent in the second quarter after a 0.5 percent decline in the first.
