Brent North Sea crude for June delivery was 28 cents lower at 111.30 dollars a barrel. Reports also emerged of minor supply outages in Nigeria, Africas biggest oil producer, after rebels caused a fire at the Beniboye oil plants in the Delta State of Nigeria. Brent for May expired on Tuesday at a record 111.31 dollars a barrel after reaching an intraday high of 112.08 dollars. During the last days the prices of black gold broke new records as the weak US dollar drove investors to the purchase of first materials buy.
