The oil price is still showing a 1% loss so far this week as concern grows about the ability of Opec and its partners to counter rapid growth in U.S. crude production, which is tipped to hit a record 11 million bpd before the end of the year.
OPEC raised its forecast for oil supply from non-member countries in 2018 as higher prices encourage us shale drillers to pump more, offsetting an OPEC-led deal to clear a supply glut and a collapse in Venezuelan production.

The production in the country, which has already surpassed Saudi Arabia, is expected to grow to more than 11 million barrels per day later this year, overtaking Russian and becoming the the world's largest oil producer.
