BP says will break even with oil at $55/barrel in 2017 - CEO

“Last year we said we needed to balance at $60 and we had a job to get it there ... Next year we will be able to balance south of $55,” he told the Oil & Money annual conference.

He also said he does not see production rising fast in Iraq next year and that there is still no clarity on new contracts in Iran.
