Benchmark oil contract Brent North Sea briefly surged above $80 a barrel Thursday, hitting its highest level since late 2014 and extending a recent run higher fuelled by tight supply concerns.
Brent North Sea crude for delivery in July jumped to $80.18 a barrel in the late European morning -- the highest level since November 2014 -- after a gain of more than one percent compared with Wednesday's close.
By mid-afternoon it had pulled back to $79.65, still 37 cents higher from Wednesday.
