Oil prices declined on Monday as U.S. stockpiles are at record highs. However, Baker Hughes, an industry research group, reported on Friday that the number of active drilling rigs in the U.S. further declined by 33 to 986, the lowest count since 2011. A poll conducted by Reuters, showed that the price of oil is likely to have found the bottom and may start to grow in the second half of 2015, since the fall in 2014 caused a decline in production. On Sunday Iraqi oil minister said he sees oil prices rising to USD65 a barrel.
