Crude oil price rise, takeover boosts Woodside and Santos


Crude oil rose for the first time in seven days in New York after the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries’ president said there was consensus for a “significant” production cut when the group meets next week.

Group president Chakib Khelil told the Associated Press a “severe” cut may be needed to halt the decline in prices. Slowing world economies will trim global demand growth to 0.2 percent next year, the International Energy Agency said Dec. 5.

Crude oil for January delivery rose as much as $1.33, or 3.3 percent, to $42.14 a barrel in after-hours electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. It was at $41.81 at 10:13 a.m. Sydney time.
