During the week ending on 20 October, commercial crude oil inventories grew by 0.9m barrels from the previous week to reach 457.3m barrels, according to the Energy Information Administration, the US Department of Energy's statistical arm.

Brent, the global benchmark, rose 11 cents, or 0.19%, to $58.44 a barrel on ICE Futures Europe. U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude dropped 29 cents to $52.18.

Oil prices were mixed Wednesday, with the USA benchmark ending the day lower after inventory data showed that the amount of oil in storage increased, while the global benchmark rose slightly. Even as crude supplies remain high in the USA, weighing on prices, Brent prices have moved more on growing geopolitical risks that could disrupts supplies.
