Kazakhstan to introduce new tariff for Russian oil transit to China.

By bne IntelliNews August 23, 2012
KazTransOil plans to introduce new lower tariffs for Russian oil transited to China via Atasu-Alashankou oil pipeline. The new tariff will be effective from Sep 1. Kazakhstan will charge USD 11.2 per 1 tonnes/1000 km, down from current rate of USD 25.6 per 1 tonne/1000 km. Russian oil is being sent via the pipeline though Omsk-Pavlodar-Atasu route which originates in Western Siberia. The lower tariff was the most probably initiated by CNPC which is the only purchaser of oil from Atasu-Alashankou pipeline. The Chinese company is interested in attracting Russian suppliers as deliveries of Kazakh oil were decreasing in past months due to an increase in domestic supplies. Russian companies were reportedly provided a monthly quota of 250,000 tonnes of oil per month in Atasu-Alashankou pipeline until 2013.
