Differentiated approach towards East Siberian oil export duties will remain - Kudrin

DAVOS. Jan 28 (Interfax) - A differentiated approach towards export duties on the oil produced at East Siberian fields will remain, Russian Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Alexei Kudrin told journalists in Davos.

"Overall, the policy with regard to the East Siberian oil remains the same, and we are ready to export at a different rate and fix a different quality," he said. It should be determined "which sort of rate," the minister said. This will depend on "the economy of the oil fields," he said.
