While the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries didn’t discuss deepening curbs in Abu Dhabi Thursday, they did put pressure on members to implement promised cuts.

West Texas Intermediate crude for October delivery lost 12 cents, or 0.2%, to $54.97 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange at 9:06 a.m. in Singapore. The contract fell 66 cents to to $55.09 on Thursday.
