Global oil benchmark Brent crude started the day on Tuesday with a slight upward movement, according to official data.
Oil opened the week at $35.12 per barrel on Monday, and on Tuesday saw more than $1 dollar increase to $36.80 at 11:06 GMT, official data shows.
Oil prices are currently not seeing major changes in favor of a price increase due to the continued gloom of excess supply in the market, which is expected to continue unless action is taken.
The American benchmark West Texas Intermediate was around $32.50 Tuesday; an increase from Monday's price at $34.11.
According to Russian Media, on Tuesday Russian President Vladimir Putin will meet the heads of top Russian oil companies to discuss the impact of low oil prices on revenues.
