TOKYO (Reuters) - Oil prices pulled back on profit-taking on Friday after settling more than 4 percent higher a day earlier after government data confirmed a surprisingly huge drawdown in U.S. crude inventories.

Imports into the U.S. Gulf Coast fell to 2.5 million barrels per day, the lowest since data collection began in 1990.
Traders said the imports fell as ships delayed offloading cargoes in Texas and Louisiana due to Tropical Storm Hermine.
Russian average oil production rose close to 11 million bpd during Sept. 1-7, industry sources told Reuters, from 10.71 million bpd in August.
