Saudi Arabia is ready to raise its output to 11 million barrels a day “in the near future” Energy Minister Khalid Al-Falih

The kingdom has already boosted oil production to 10.7 million barrels a day, near an all-time high, and it can increase it even more to help plug any supply shortfalls due to USA sanctions against Iran's energy industry, Saudi Energy Minister Khalid Al-Falih told a conference in Riyadh.
Oil rose towards $77 a barrel on Wednesday after hitting a two-month low as the focus returned to looming USA sanctions on oil exporter Iran, although concern about a weaker demand outlook weighed. Despite the global sell-off, oil markets are supported by concerns over the impact of USA sanctions on Iranian crude exports, which kick in from November 4.
Brent crude, the global benchmark, has dropped nearly 10 percent from a four-year high of $86.29 a barrel on October 3 as Saudi Arabia and Russian Federation promised extra supplies and US stockpiles climbed.

In value terms, India imported $0.91 billion worth of crude oil from Iran in September alone, a 60 per cent jump over $0.57 billion worth of crude imported in the same month past year.
Oil prices fell earlier after Saudi Arabia's energy minister sought for a second straight day to assure markets the kingdom will keep the world adequately supplied with crude. This decline is similar to the drop in Iran's crude oil production that occurred when sanctions on Iran's Central Bank were imposed in 2012.
