Crude settles higher despite surprise build in U.S. crude stockpiles

Crude futures settled higher on Wednesday, but pulled back sharply from one-month highs, after the latest Energy Information Administration (EIA) report showed an unexpected rise in U.S. crude inventories to a record high.On the New York Mercantile Exchange crude futures for April delivery added 12 cents to settle at $51.15 a barrel, while on London's Intercontinental Exchange, Brent gained 22 cents to settle at 54.29 a barrel.Oil prices retreated from one-month highs, as fears returned that a ramp up in U.S. oil production could prove a challenge to an OPEC-led deal aimed at tackling the oversupply issue in the industry.For the week ending March 29, The EIA said that crude oil inventories rose by 1.566 million barrels compared to estimates of a draw of 0.435 million barrels.Gasoline inventories dipped by 0.618 million against expectations for a drop of 1.422 million barrels while distillate stockpiles fell by 0.536 million barrels, compared to expectations of a 1.016 million decline.The surprise build in U.S. crude stockpiles confounded expectations that U.S. demand for oil would start to pick up ahead of the ‘summer driving season’.The Energy Information Administration (EIA) says that gasoline demand is typically about a million barrels per day higher at its summer peak than at its low point for the year, which is generally in January.Meanwhile, market participants turn attention to Baker Hughes rig count, due to be released on Friday at 13:00 EDT.
