(Bloomberg) -- Oil held gains above $46 a barrel as optimism that demand will help shrink supplies outweighed an increase in U.S. rigs drilling for crude.

Futures were little changed in New York, after rising 5.2 percent last week. Stockpiles will drop at a faster pace worldwide this half of the year as demand rises and OPEC members comply better with an output-cut agreement, according to Haitham al-Ghais, Kuwait’s governor to the group. U.S. drillers targeting crude added two last week, the smallest increase since May.

While oil advanced last week, prices in New York are still below $50 a barrel on concerns expanded global supplies will offset output curbs by the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies as part of a deal to help rebalance the market. The group’s output climbed last month to the highest this year as members exempt from the deal -- Nigeria and Libya -- pumped more and others slipped in delivering their pledged curbs.

The number of active oil rigs in the U.S. rose to 765, according to Baker Hughes data reported Friday. It’s the second week of renewed growth after drillers snapped a 23-week stretch of advances at the end of June. Shale explorers have been the driving force behind a surge in U.S. production, more than doubling the rig count from a low of 316 in May 2016.
