An official report issued by the Central Bank showed that the government’s share of oil revenues reached $19 million between January and April. The revenues recorded a decrease of $322 million in the same period last year. “The government’s share of oil barrels was 8 million barrels compared to 10 million barrels in 2012,” noted the report.
According to the report, the international low price of oil also contributed to the decreased share of the government. It also noted that the local market consumed around 7 million barrels of oil from January to April. The total value of oil imports reached $885 million during the first third of this year.
