Aug 6 (Reuters) - Canadian oil sands producer Athabasca Oil Corp reported a bigger quarterly loss as the company made a C$49 million ($44.7 million) provision to settle some claims made by PetroChina Co Ltd’s Phoenix Energy Holdings Ltd.

Net loss widened to C$56.8 million, or 14 Canadian cents per share, for the second quarter ended June 30, from C$30 million, or 7 Canadian cents, a year earlier.
