No visible reasons for decrease of tax load on oil-and-gas sector
Astana. December 19. Kazakhstan Today - The chairman of Tax Committee of the Ministry of Finance of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Daulet Ergozhin, said, as of today, there are no reasons for decrease of tax load on oil-and-gas sector, the agency reports. D. Ergozhin considers the current decrease of the world prices for raw material as the temporary tendency, not capable to affect financial and economic parameters of the long-term subsoil use projects. "For example, the price for uranium in the middle of this year decreased by 40 % and started to grow in December. We believe that after acceptance of the corresponding measures by the USA and in connection with the last OPEC decision regarding decrease of extraction there will be changes of oil prices," the chairman of Tax Committee of the Ministry of Finance said.
