MTECHTIPS- Crude oil prices fell in Asia on Wednesday as industry data showed a larger than expected build in U.S. stockpiles, adding more bearish sentiment on the supply outlook. Crude oil for December delivery on the New York Mercantile Exchange dropped 0.56% to $46.41 a barrel. The American Petroleum Institute said on Tuesday that crude oil inventories last week surged 9.3 million barrels for the second straight weekly build under its estimates and well above market expectations. Gasoline inventories dropped 3.6 million barrels last week, while distillate fell 3.1 million barrels, a fourth straight drop. Cushing recorded a build of 1.0 million barrels for the week. Official data from the Energy Information Administration will be released Wednesday, amid forecasts for an oil-stock increase of 1.0 million barrels. Overnight, oil prices pushed higher during North American hours on Tuesday, bouncing back after plunging 4% to one-month lows in the prior session as market players looked ahead to weekly data from the U.S. on stockpiles of crude and refined products. Elsewhere, Brent oil for January delivery on the ICE Futures Exchange in London were last quoted at $47.91 a barrel, falling amid mounting skepticism over the implementation of a planned deal by OPEC to limit production.
