Kuwaiti crude oil dropped USD 1.20 to settle at USD 102.39 per barrel (pb) on Friday, compared to USD 103.59 pb the day before, said Kuwait Petroleum Corporation (KPC) on Saturday.
Prices of the crude oil continued to drop on international markets. Those of the forward delivery deals of the Brent fell two percent, on Friday, the heaviest loss on record since September, after a negative report about US unemployment fuelled further worries regarding economy of the largest crude consumer.

In the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX), prices of the US crude oil for forward delivery fell on Friday, ending the week in the heaviest proportional loss.
