Reuters reported that oil prices fell further, pulled down by an expectation that producer club OPEC and its allies will increase supplies. Brent crude futures, the international benchmark for oil prices, were at USD 73.05 per barrel at 0036 GMT, down 39 cents, or 0.5 percent, from their last close. US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were at $64.24 a barrel, down 82 cents, or 1.3 percent, from their last settlement. The drops came after crude futures fell around 3 percent on Friday, hurt by concerns about rising output and a US-China trade row.

Mr Stephen Innes, head of trading for Asia/Pacific at futures brokerage OANDA, said that "Oil prices tanked after Russia and Saudi Arabia all but confirmed a production increase."

The producer cartel of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), which is de-facto led by Saudi Arabia, and some allies including Russia have been withholding output with since the start of 2017. Producers will meet in Vienna on June 22 to decide forward production policy.
