Belarus raised export duties on oil and oil products
On July 1, Belarus increased the export duties on oil and oil products exported outside the EurAsEC customs territory.

According to BelaPAN with reference to the press service of the Belarusian government, the decision is based on the Decree #484 of the Council of Ministers passed on 27 June 2017.

The crude oil export duty has risen from 80 to 80.9 dollars per ton, for gasoline — from 44 to 44.4, for the light and middle distillates — from 24 to 24.2. The same duty was set for diesel fuel, benzene, and other kinds of lubricating oils.

Previously, the rates were reduced on June 1, 2017, but before that they rose in March, February, and last fall.
