Oil prices traded in mixed fashion Thursday, with the US benchmark contract weighed down by a much bigger-than-expected increase in US crude inventories.
New York's main contract, West Texas Intermediate (WTI) for December delivery, ended at $93.76 a barrel, a decline of 12 cents from Wednesday's close.
In London trade, Brent North Sea crude for delivery in December jumped $1.42 to $108.54 a barrel.
Brent futures won support from unrest in Libya, which offset the bullish news on US oil stockpiles, traders said.
