Future oil contracts operated close to stability this Thursday, with United States oil around a maximum of three and a half years, but investors still fear a major drop in Iran's exports due to U.S. sanctions and consequently a grip on the offer. The Brent oil rose 0.19 dollar, or 0,24%, at 77.81 dollars a barrel, at 9:05 (Brasilia time). United States oil fell 0.27, 000, or 0,37%, at 72.49 dollars a barrel.
The United States demanded this week that all countries suspend imports of Iranian oil from November, a positioning that reflects the efforts of Donald Trump's government to cut funding to the Asian nation.
The measure follows a decision by the Organization of Oil exporting countries last week to increase production to try to moderate oil prices, which rose more than 40% in the last year. "Several people will be reviewing their predictions for the loss of Iranian barrels," said Harry Tchilinguirian, French bank strategist BNP Paribas, at the Reuters Global Oil Forum.
