Oil prices tumbled nearly 4 percent on Monday on concern that record Iraqi crude exports and rising U.S. output would undermine OPEC's efforts to curb global oversupply, reports say.

Accordingly U.S. crude futures settled at $51.96 per barrel, down $2.03, or 3.8 percent. That was the weakest daily closing level since Dec. 16.

Brent crude futures were down $2.22, or 3.9 percent, at $54.88 a barrel at 2:35 p.m. ET (1912 GMT), near the lows of the day.
