Oil prices slid on Tuesday as data showed a drop in crude exports from Saudi Arabia and as US traders returned to work after a long holiday weekend.
Brent North Sea crude for delivery in April dropped 45 cents to $116.93 a barrel in late London deals.
New York's main contract, light sweet crude for March slipped 10 cents to $95.76 a barrel.
"We're seeing a little pullback on a relatively quiet day, with data showing Saudi Arabia production dipping," said Jason Hughes, head of premium client management at IG Markets in Singapore.
