中国石化新闻网讯 据Azernews新闻网站3月11日消息 周三油价连续第二天攀升，因市场希望美国生产商削减产量，为油价提供支撑，但Trend援引路透社报道称，对影响华盛顿冠状病毒的疑虑不断增加，限制了油价上涨。

Oil extends gains as U.S. output cut hopes grow
Oil prices climbed for a second day on Wednesday as hopes U.S. producers would cut output lent support, but gains were capped by growing doubts about Washington’s stimulus package to fight the coronavirus, which continues to spread globally, Trend reports with reference to Reuters.
Brent crude futures rose $1.26, or 3.4%, to $38.48 a barrel by 0418 GMT, while U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude gained $0.91, or 2.7%, to $35.27 a barrel.
They have recouped nearly a half of the Monday’s 25% loss, which was triggered by the clash of oil titans Saudi Arabia and Russia.
“Expectations that U.S. shale oil producers will need to trim output helped improve the market sentiment,” said Satoru Yoshida, a commodity analyst with Rakuten Securities.
U.S. shale producers, including Occidental Petroleum, deepened spending cuts that could reduce production after crude prices slumped to their lowest levels in more than three years.
Oil and equity markets staged solid rebounds on Tuesday after the previous day’s pummeling, on signs of co-ordinated action by the world’s biggest economies to cushion the economic impact of the epidemic.
