Oil Prices Dip on Surging Iran Sales, but Looming OPEC Deal Offers Support

Oil prices dipped early on Tuesday, weighed down by a rise in Iranian exports that adds to a global supply overhang, although a planned OPEC-led supply cut later this year has lent crude some support.

International Brent crude oil futures were trading at $50.79 per barrel at 0015 GMT, down 10 cents from their previous close.

U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude CLc1 was down 15 cents at $48.66 a barrel.
