Oil prices edged up on Wednesday, lifted by declining U.S. crude inventories, although markets were still restrained by general oversupply.
Market focus was turning to the release of official U.S. Energy Information Administration data later on Wednesday for a further update on inventories.
Brent crude futures were at $51.06 per barrel at 0651 GMT, up 23 cents, or 0.45 percent, from their last close.
