Oil prices fall as Iran's exports surge, U.S. adds more rigs

Oil prices fall as Iran's exports surge, U.S. adds more rigs

Oil prices fell on Monday as increased exports from Iran undermined efforts by other oil producers to curb a global fuel supply overhang and as U.S. drillers increased activity for a 10th straight week, according to Reuters.

Brent crude futures LCOc1 were trading at $56.70 per barrel at 07:45 GMT (2.45 a.m. ET), down 40 cents, or 0.7 percent, from their previous close, as reported by Reuters.

Iran's surging tanker exports were not the only indicator of plentiful supplies. Last week, U.S. energy companies added oil rigs for a tenth week in a row, extending a recovery in activity into an eighth month as crude prices remained at levels at which many drillers can operate profitably. "The next leg up in prices probably won't occur until the traders see evidence that production levels are falling. In the meantime, rising U.S. drilling activity and output is likely to keep prices in check," ANZ bank said on Monday................
