The price of oil has increased significantly, entrenched above $ 61 (Brent) and $ 53 (WTI) amid signs that spending cuts in the mining sector may limit the excessive supply. As it became known, the US oil and gas company Apache Corp announced its intention to reduce the number of drilling rigs by 70%. In turn, the French company Total announced plans spending cuts and volumes of exploration. Due to this, the company expects to save in 2015 to $ 4 billion. Total is going to cut two thousand. Jobs by 2017 and sell assets worth $ 5.5 billion. Investments also cut General Electric, Lariat Services, Trican Well Service and Royal Dutch Shell. This leads to reduced production.

Also, market participants are waiting for the publication of today's data on the number of drilling rigs Baker Hughes (at 18:00 GMT). WTI crude oil may continue to rally above the high of the week when the report will reflect a reduction plants in the United States. Recall last week Baker Hughes, reported that the number of oil rigs in the United States decreased by 83 to 1140 units.
