Oil prices fell in early trading on Monday as the chances of Middle East producers agreeing to curb overproduction appeared to fade, while US output remains stubbornly high. Front month US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were trading at USD 36.38 per barrel at 0302 GMT, down 1.1 percent or 41 cents cents from their last settlement.

International Brent futures were down 0.9 percent or 34 cents at USD 38.33 a barrel. The falls extended a 4 percent tumble on Friday when Saudi Arabia said it would only participate in a global freeze of its output if its rival Iran also took part, something Tehran has so far dismissed.
