NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Denbury Resources (DNR) - Get Denbury Resources Inc. Report were dropping 5.94% to $2.93 in late-morning trading on Tuesday as oil prices slumped.

Crude oil (WTI) was retreating 2.81% to $44.99 per barrel and Brent crude was falling 2.28% to $47.22 per barrel this morning.

Oil prices were under pressure after the International Energy Agency (IEA) said that a slowdown in global oil demand growth and swelling inventories and increasing supply mean that the crude market will be oversupplied at least through the first six months of 2017, Reuters reports.

A month ago, the agency expected supply and demand to be largely in balance over the rest of this year and expected inventories to drop.

"It seems the situation has deteriorated strongly in the eyes of OPEC as well as the IEA," Commerzbank head of commodities strategy Eugen Weinberg told Reuters.

"I wouldn't be surprised to see this price weakness continue for a while, because that was not on the cards," he added.
