Meanwhile, imports of Iranian crude oil by major buyers in Asia hit their lowest in more than five years last month, as US sanctions on Iran's oil exports took effect.

Last Thursday, crude oil declined by 4.24% to US$ 52.16 per barrel after reports of an increase in US inventories. Oil prices fell to their lowest in more than a year on Thursday, a day after their biggest one-day rally in two years, pulled down by worries about the global economy and a supply glut.

Reportedly, US crude inventories rose by 6.9 million barrels to 448.2 million barrels on increased refinery output.

The United States has emerged as the world's biggest crude producer, pumping 11.6 million barrels per day (bpd), more than both Saudi Arabia and Russia.

Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said that rising protectionism and the unpredictability of the US administration had greatly contributed to global oil price volatility over the past two years. Novak also said Russia would cut its crude output by between 3 and 5 million tonnes in the first half of 2019 as part of a deal between producers

Earlier this month, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and its allies including Russia, agreed to curb output by 1.2 million bpd starting in January in a bid to clear a supply overhang and prop up prices.

Oil prices have been pulled down sharply since October by signs of an economic slowdown. Meanwhile the two world's biggest economies, the United States and China, are locked in a trade war which is threatening to slow global growth and battering investor sentiment.
