SINGAPORE: Oil prices recovered on Thursday from a steep drop in the previous session, supported by tight oil supply and peak summer consumption, after a U.S. rate hike sparked fears of slower economic growth and less fuel demand.
Brent crude futures LCOc1 rose 77 cents, or 0.7%, to $119.28 a barrel by 0400 GMT while U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude CLc1 futures climbed to $116.33 a barrel, up $1.02, or 0.9%.
Prices slipped more than 2% overnight after the Federal Reserve raised interest rate by three-quarters of a percentage point, the biggest hike since 1994.
The dollar index .DXY retreated from a 20-year high, easing downward pressure on oil prices. A stronger greenback makes U.S. dollar-priced oil more expensive for holders of other currencies, curtailing demand.
Investors remained focused on tight supplies and robust demand as Western sanctions restricted access to Russian oil.
"It was overall a volatile session across almost all markets yesterday," said Howie Lee, an economist at Singapore's OCBC bank.
"Tight fundamentals suggest any dips in oil prices are likely to be short-lived, or shallow, or possibly both."
Optimism that China's oil demand will rebound as it eases COVID-19 restrictions also supported the price outlook.
"A rebound in China demand sentiment, and expected seasonal ramp-up in OECD oil demand into August leaves price risk to the upside through 3Q 2022," said Baden Moore, head of commodities research at the National Australia Bank.
