The United Arab Emirates has the lowest break-even oil price at $3 per barrel, while Brazil has the highest break even oil price at $33 per barrel.

The oil price went above $65 a barrel for the first time in more than two years today morning after a crack in the UK North Sea’s main pipeline system threatened short-term production.

Brent crude, the international crude oil benchmark, hit $65.70 a barrel before slipping back to $65.33.

Last month, the Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (Opec) and non-Opec producers led by Russia agreed to extend production cuts until the end of 2018 as part of an effort to increase oil prices.
