16th October, 2021

The Institute of International Finance expected that Iraq needs a price of 64 dollars per barrel of oil during the next year to achieve financial balance.

The institute stated in a report that “all oil-producing countries will witness a decrease in the price of oil to achieve parity or financial balance in the budgets of the oil-exporting countries and without a significant deficit,” noting that this is due to “the rise in oil and gas production in these countries in exchange for limited government spending cuts.” 

According to the report, the break-even price of oil in Iraq – the second largest oil producer in OPEC – will be at $62 a barrel in 2022, down from $63 a barrel this year.

In other oil and gas producing countries, Qatar’s budget will witness a financial break-even point at $44 a barrel next year, down from $52 a barrel during 2021. Bahrain, which is described as the smallest oil producer in the Gulf – will also witness a financial break-even, at $76 a barrel. During 2022, compared to $82 a barrel in 2021.

In contrast, the fiscal breakeven point in the budget of Saudi Arabia – the largest oil exporter in the world – will drop to $67 a barrel in 2022, compared to $75 a barrel in 2021.  LINK
