Crude oil prices in Malaysia are seen steady on Friday ahead of data next week.

Bursa Malaysia front-month palm oil futures for November fell 0.6 percent to 2,277 ringgit (US$549.60) a metric ton on volumes of 26,289 lots of 25 metric tons each. Traders are looking ahead to data on Malaysian exports for August due on September 12.

Palm oil also faces some pressure with demand on the weaker side as top importer India is under pressure from a weaker rupee against the dollar.
