Oil prices steady

Oil prices were little changed on Tuesday after five sessions of gains, with weak oil data from top crude importer China balanced by concern over supply.

Brent crude futures fell 22 cents, or 0.26%, to $85.96 a barrel by 1043 GMT. U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude was down 16 cents, or 0.2%, at $80.30.

Price support was provided by supply concerns. Chevron (CVX.N) Chief Executive Mike Wirth on Monday told at a Houston conference that there is “not a lot of swing capacity”, making the global market vulnerable to any unexpected supply disruption.
