    Russia increases Transneft tariffs Russia’s Federal Tariff Service will raise the main tariff for oil pipeline transport by 6% for 2008. Transneft’s tariff applies to the price oil companies pay to Transneft’s regional subsidiaries for actual transportation and what Transneft charges for coordinating the process-the dispatch fee. The transportation fee will be increased by 6%, while the dispatch fee will be increased by 33%. The tariff service also said the tariff on the Baltic pipeline to Russia’s key Primorsk port will increase by 15%.
