Oil falls as Saudi, Russian output rises

President Donald Trump lashed out at OPEC with a warning to stop manipulating oil markets and piled pressure on close U.S. allies in an interview that aired on Sunday with a threat to sanction European companies that do business with Iran.

Geoffrey Craig, the oil futures editor at Platts, said the drain on USA inventory levels is in part because of higher domestic exports, which set a record for the week ending June 22 at 3 million barrels per day.

The cabinet commended "constructive cooperation between producing countries from inside and outside OPEC, which resulted in the agreement of 25 countries to increase oil supplies, taking into account the current market conditions".

OPEC pledged to relax compliance with an agreement that helped balance an oversupplied market, but that might not be enough to address a looming deficit of around 2 million barrels per day. This increase is needed to cope with the "turmoil and dysfunction in Iran and Venezuela", Trump tweeted.
