Oil edged up from multi-month lows on Thursday, but prices remained under pressure from a supply glut that has persisted despite OPEC-led efforts to balance the market.
Brent crude futures were up 40 cents at $45.22 a barrel at 1017 GMT, after falling as low as $44.53 earlier in the day. They fell 2.6 percent in the previous session to $44.35, their lowest since November.
U.S. crude futures were up 29 cents at $42.82 a barrel, after also slipping earlier in the day. On Wednesday, they touched $42.05, their lowest intraday level since August 2016.
