Global crude oil rates have gained strength after the implementation of production cuts by top producers, recovering from levels below $50 a barrel registered last month.

Brent crude futures – the international benchmark for crude oil – dropped by $1.2 to settle nearly 2 per cent lower at $60.48 a barrel on Friday. The global crude benchmark had the previous day logged its first nine-day rally since September 2007.
