Poland Proposes Royalty Tax on Gas, Oil
By Marynia Kruk
WARSAW–Poland’s government proposed a new tax structure for its oil and gas sector Tuesday, which will be based on both the value of a given company’s production volumes and its profits, with the total tax burden reaching 40% of gross profits.
The framework has been keenly awaited by Poland’s embryonic shale gas sector. Many companies slowed down work on drilling test wells this year in anticipation of clarification on their future tax burden.
