Baku, April 2, AZERTAC
U.S. crude oil production unchanged during the week ending March 27, U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) said Wednesday, Xinhua reports.
According to the EIA, U.S. crude oil production averaged 13.0 million barrels per day (b/d) last week, the same as the previous week and up by about 800,000 b/d year-on-year.
Oil prices declined on Wednesday as concerns of supply glut and weaker demand rattled the market.
