Russian oil export duty will rise $2.6, or 0.68 percent month-on-month on April 1, 2014, a leading expert at the tax and customs and tariff policy department of the Russian Finance Ministry Alexander Sakovich told Itar-Tass on March 17.
The oil price during the reviewed period of February 15 - March 14, 2014 averaged $108.08125 a barrel, or $789 per tonne, Sakovich added. Accordingly, the oil duty, given the current calculation formula, should be $387 per tonne.
