Oil extended losses after an industry report showed a surprise build in U.S. crude inventories, adding to concerns over a split within OPEC.

Futures fell toward $44 a barrel in New York after the American Petroleum Institute was said to report a 4.15 million-barrel increase in domestic crude stocks last week, while most market observers expect a decline. The report also showed increases in both gasoline and diesel inventories ahead of U.S. government figures on Wednesday.
