Brent futures slipped 30 cents to $73.15 a barrel compared to the end of the previous session.

U.S. WTI futures moved 26 cents lower to $68.70 per barrel.

On Thursday there had been a big rebound spurred by Cushing storage hub but few other things supported the upward movement on Friday, therefore a certain correction took place, said Olivier Jakob of Petromatrix.
