MOSCOW (ICIS)--The Russian government on Wednesday released a decision to review export duties applicable to petrochemical products.
In January, the duty levied on ethylene, propylene, butylene and butadiene (BD) will increase to $198.70/tonne (€151.01/tonne) from $197.40/tonne in December, according to the decree N 1368 signed by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.
However, the export duty levied on gasoline and naphta will be $356.00/tonne, marginally down from $356.80/tonne in December, according to the decree.
The duty levied on benzene, xylenes and toluene is set at $261.10/tonne, down from $261.70/tonne.
Russia reviews its export duties levied on petrochemical products once a month, largely in accordance with changes of the crude oil export duty.
In addition, the export duty levied on crude oil will amount to $395.60/tonne, down from $396.50/tonne in December.
