Singapore - AFP

Oil rose in Asian trade Monday after eurozone finance ministers cleared the way for debt-hit Greece to receive 12 billion euros by mid-July, analysts said. In afternoon trade, New York\'s main contract, West Texas Intermediate for August delivery, rose 12 cents to $95.07 a barrel and Brent North Sea crude for August added 18 cents to $111.95. A key factor supporting oil prices is the \"confirmation that Greece will get the batch of bailout money from the eurozone,\" said Victor Shum, a Singapore-based analyst with Purvin and Gertz energy consultancy. \"That has eased concerns about Greece sinking the European region into a downturn,\" he told AFP. Eurozone finance ministers Saturday cleared the way for Athens to receive the next 12-billion-euro tranche of last year\'s 110-billion-euro ($160 billion) European Union-International Monetary Fund bailout. But the ministers still need to work on a second rescue package potentially of similar size to ensure Greece can stay afloat until at least 2014, warding off a devastating default that would reverberate across Europe. European diplomats warn that eurozone finance chiefs are unlikely to finalise a second bailout at their next meeting on July 11 and that Greece may have to wait until September. Negotiations for a new rescue are more complex because some governments, especially Germany, want private investors to share the burden by agreeing to voluntarily \"roll over\" their Greek debt.
