US West Texas Intermediate crude was up 55 cents, or 0.8 per cent, at $71.67 a barrel, after rising almost 2 per cent the previous session.

The pipeline capacity expansion-with the Dakota Access Pipeline and the Energy Transfer Crude Oil Pipeline (ETCO)-lifted the share of crude pipeline transportation of the Midwest's total domestic crude oil shipments to 87 percent in June 2018 from 64 percent in June 2015, the EIA said.
