LONDON Jan 20 (Reuters) - European equity futures dropped lower on Wednesday as a relentless slide in oil prices hit world markets.

Futures on the Euro STOXX 50, Germany's DAX, France's CAC and Britain's FTSE were down by between 1.9-2.7 percent.

Energy and mining shares could again bear the brunt of a sell-off.

U.S. crude oil prices fell to their lowest level since 2003 after the world's energy watchdog warned the market could "drown in oversupply".

The pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 index had closed up 1.4 percent on Tuesday, marking a rebound from 13-month lows reached earlier this month.
