On Wednesday, Oil prices reportedly rose over 1-percent to reach a peak level in about one month, since crude stockpiles declined more than expected, amidst concerns over a potential US Iran divergence.
Brent crude futures were up 1.3pc at USD65.91 which previously touched their highest since May-end. US WTI crude futures were at USD58.98/ barrel, up 1.8pc from their last settlement.

Accordingly, stock of Bharat Petroleum (BPCL) trade lower by 1.54% at Rs.387.05 per share, Hindustan Petroleum (HPCL) down 2.28% to Rs288.75 and Indian Oil Corp (IOC) declined 0.32% at Rs154.10 on the NSE as of mid-morning at 11.15am.
