Crude oil futures were trading marginally higher during the afternoon trade in the domestic market on Monday as investors and speculators extended their positions in the energy commodity after OPEC and other major producers, last week, extended their current deal to limit oil production for 9 months.
However, a constant rise in the US drilling undermined an OPEC-led push to tighten supply, restricted further rise in crude oil prices.
