Oil: Russian oil companies suspend export to Kyrgyzstan

FOCUS Information Agency - Several Russian oil companies have suspended export to Kyrgyzstan as of April 2010, Interfax informs.

This measure was provoked by a decision of the Russian Federal Customs Service to impose a 100% customs duty on exported oil.

Oil companies directly affected by the problem – Lukoil, Gazprom Neft, Russneft and TNK-BP have not yet made official comments on the situation.
