Prices had been rising steadily since their October 2019 lows on rising tension across the Middle East, despite the ongoing glut that has plagued the oil and gas industry for several years. 

Meanwhile, Iran's own oil production has been hit hard by US sanctions, dropping by 1.7 million barrels per day (bpd) between an average of 3.18 million bpd in 2017 to just 2.102 million bpd in November 2019.
