Tariff rates for oil transportation services over trunk pipelines by the Kazakh oil pipeline operator KazTransOil will rise by 37 cents effective today, January 1, 2024.

In 2018-2023 Russian companies paid $9.3 for pumping one ton of oil at a distance of 1000 km, now it will cost $11.28. Thus, Kazakhstan's tariff for oil transportation services for Russian oil exports rose by 21.29%.

The Kazakh sector of TON-2 pipeline is 186.25 km long.
