Oil traded near $49 a barrel before representatives of OPEC nations meet with their allies to discuss why some of them are falling behind in pledges to reduce production.
Futures fell 0.2 percent in New York after climbing 1.1 percent Friday. The two-day meeting in Abu Dhabi starting Monday and co-chaired by Kuwait and Russia will examine why some participants in the deal to collectively reduce global supply aren’t fully implementing their cuts. The number of U.S. drill rigs targeting crude fell by one last week, according to Baker Hughes Inc.
Oil in New York was unable to hold its first advance above $50 a barrel since May as signs of rising global supply eroded optimism that output curbs by the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and its partners are rebalancing the market. Compliance to cuts fell to 86 percent in July, the lowest level since January, according to a Bloomberg survey.
