Iran’s weekly light crude price surpasses $77

TEHRAN- Iran’s light crude oil price rose 43 cents in the week ended on May 25, to continue its upward trend for third consecutive weeks.

The Iranian light crude price settled at $77. 03 per barrel in the mentioned week, Shana reported on Saturday.

The country’s light oil price was reported $67. 1 on average since the beginning of 2018 until May 25.

Iran’s heavy crude oil also experienced an 83-cent rise in the said week to reach $74. 1 per barrel.

During the said week, Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC)’s basket price stood at $76. 1 per barrel with 65 cents increase compared to the preceding week.

Oil prices got close to $80 per barrel in May, a level it has not seen since November 2014, on strong demand, ongoing supply cuts led by producer cartel OPEC and looming U. S. sanctions against major crude exporter Iran.



Mount Damavand is the highest peak in Iran and the highest volcano in Asia.
