KUWAIT CITY (AFP) - Saudi Arabia said on Sunday it is ready to supply oil as demanded by customers, but acknowledged that the kingdoms output had dropped last month. Saudi Arabia will supply whatever customers ask for, Oil Minister Ali al-Naimi told reporters on arrival in Kuwait to attend an Asian energy ministers meeting. The market is over-supplied... (and) Asian demand is very strong, he said. But he acknowledged that the kingdoms oil output fell to 8.29 million barrels per day in March from as high as 9.1 million bpd the previous month. The minister declined to comment on what is a fair price for oil. Crude prices rose on Friday amid choppy trade, as Chinese inflation figures and events in Nigeria and Libya cast a shadow over the market. New Yorks main contract, light sweet crude for delivery in May, rose $1.55 to $109.66 a barrel. Londons Brent North Sea crude for June delivery gained $1.09 to $121.80.
