與此同時，分析人士表示，沙特阿拉伯新任能源部長阿卜杜勒阿齊茲·本·薩勒曼親王（Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman）就歐佩克及其盟友正在達成的減產協議發表的樂觀言論，有助于原油價格上漲。
阿卜杜勒阿齊茲·本·薩勒曼親王很可能將與俄羅斯和其他歐佩克成員國合作，以確保大幅減產，從而一勞永逸地為石油埋下伏筆。普萊斯期貨集團（Price Futures Group）高級市場分析師菲爾?弗林（Phil Flynn）說，由于代表們表示，在阿布扎比會議期間，不太可能建議修改正在進行的減產協議的框架，這可能需要一些工作來降低預期。不過，分析師表示，需求擔憂繼續保持價格上漲。

Crude oil futures higher on expected US crude stock draw, OPEC cuts
Crude oil futures were higher during mid-morning trade in Asia Tuesday amid an expected draw in last week's US crude inventory, while reassurance from Saudi Arabia on the ongoing supply cuts by OPEC and its allies further buoyed prices higher.
At 10:30 am in Singapore (0230 GMT), ICE Brent November futures moved 35 cents/b (0.56%) higher from Monday's settle at $62.94/b, while the NYMEX October light sweet crude futures contract was up 30 cents/b (0.52%) at $58.15/b.
According to analysts surveyed Monday by S&P Global Platts, US commercial crude inventories for the week ended September 6 fell 3.6 million barrels to 419.4 million barrels.
As for product inventory, analysts estimate US gasoline stocks to have fallen 1.4 million barrels, while distillate stocks had risen 220,000 barrels last week.
Preliminary data on last week's US crude and product inventory is due for release from the American Petroleum Institute later Tuesday and the more definitive numbers from the US Energy Information Administration data later Wednesday.
Meanwhile, bullish statements made by Saudi Arabia's new energy Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman regarding the ongoing supply cut agreement by OPEC and its allies helped in crude price gains, analysts said.
"Crude oil gained as the new Saudi Arabian oil minister signaled output cuts will continue," ANZ analysts said in a note Tuesday.
Saudi Arabia will remain a "responsible producer," the kingdom's new energy minister said Monday, as he sought to reassure the market of continuity in the kingdom's oil policy.
However, he demurred on whether he would urge OPEC and its allies to pursue deeper oil output cuts to boost prices. Prince Abdulaziz is scheduled to co-chair a key monitoring committee meeting of the OPEC/non-OPEC coalition Thursday in Abu Dhabi, where ministers will discuss the bloc's 1.2 million b/d supply cut agreement that is scheduled to run through March 2020.
"The odds are that Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman will be working on Russia and other OPEC members to secure a big production cut to put a floor under oil once and for all. That may take some work as delegates are lowering expectations saying it is unlikely to recommend changes to the framework of the ongoing production cut agreement when it meets in Abu Dhabi," Price Futures Group's senior market analyst Phil Flynn said.
Demand concerns however, continue to keep price gains, analysts said.
The International Energy Agency on Monday lowered its global demand growth forecasts due to the ongoing trade tensions between the US and China. It now expects global growth to be only 1 million b/d, down 10% from its previous estimates.
