Gazprom Neft Exempted

Gazprom Neft, the oil arm of the Russian gas exporter, said tax breaks for fields in the Yamal-Nenets region will help save about 130 billion rubles ($4.68 billion) over a 10-year period.

The Messoyakha oil field and deposits of the SeverEnergia venture will be exempt from the mineral extraction tax, Gazprom Neft said in an e-mailed statement Thursday.

The fields' first 25 million tons of production will be free of the tax, according to a law signed by President Dmitry Medvedev, the Kremlin said on its web site Thursday.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
