Oil slumps 3 percent on report Saudis do not see output deal

By Barani Krishnan

Oil prices fell about 3 percent on Friday, paring weekly gains, on a report that Saudi Arabia did not expect an agreement at talks next week among major crude exporters aimed at freezing production.

Crude futures slumped after Bloomberg reported that Saudi Arabia did not expect a decision at Algiers, the capital of Algeria where the biggest oil producers are expected to convene next week for talks, traders said. Bloomberg cited a "delegate" as source, said traders who saw the report.

Brent crude oil was down $1.33, or 2.8 percent, at $46.32 a barrel by 11:56 a.m. EDT (1556 GMT). For the week, it was up 1.6 percent.

U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude (CLc1) was down $1.40, or 2.9 percent, at $44.92. On the week, WTI showed a gain of less than 5 percent.

Earlier in the session, Brent and WTI were headed for their largest weekly gain in more than a month, reacting to a Reuters report that Saudi Arabia has offered to reduce production if rival Iran caps its own output this year. The Reuters report was based on sources who were familiar with discussions between the two sides.

Traders and investors were also awaiting a U.S. oil rig count report to ascertain if more drillers were returning to the well pad in the world's largest oil consumer. The weekly report by oil services firm Baker Hughes, due at 1:00 p.m. EDT (1700 GMT) had shown rig additions in twelve out of the last 13 weeks. [RIG/U]

2 contradictory news (including an unnamed) on the same day. A superb strategy to flush SL of late followers in both direction.
