(MENAFN- The Peninsula) QNA
SINGAPORE: Oil prices rose in early Asian trade on yesterday, clawing back some ground from more than one-year lows hit in the previous session as markets calmed somewhat after Credit Suisse was thrown a financial lifeline by Swiss regulators.
Brent crude futures rose 85 cents, or 1.2 percent, to $74.54 per barrel.
West Texas Intermediate crude futures (WTI) rose 74 cents, or 1.1 percent, to $68.35 a barrel.
Both benchmarks rose by more than $1 earlier in yesterday's session.
On Wednesday, they hit their lowest levels since December 2021, having fallen for three straight days. Brent has lost nearly 10 percent since Fridays close, while US crude is down about 11 percent.
