Oil prices were down Wednesday after industry data the night before showed an unexpected increase in U.S. stockpiles, while markets await a key report later this morning from the Energy Department.
A joint venture between Royal Dutch Shell and Exxon Mobil said on Wednesday it would appeal against a Dutch government plan to lower a production cap at the Groningen natural gas field by a further 10 percent. The 50-50 Exxon-Shell joint venture, known as NAM, said it had been left in an impossible position by being told it could continue production - vital to supply homes with gas - but without guarantees it is meeting safety standards.
A consortium of ExxonMobil Corporation (XOM), Hess Corporation (HES) and Statoil ASA (STO) has been awarded a production sharing contract for offshore Block 59 by Suriname's oil agency, Staatsolie.
