Thus, over the reporting period of 2019, oil export increased in quantitative terms by 11%, and in value terms –– by 0.3%. It should be noted that since the current year, in the reports of the customs committee, the declared volumes of oil exports have become closer to real volumes of exports.
Therefore, in the reports this is shown as growth, but in realities this year, the production of liquid hydrocarbons in the country for 10 months has decreased by almost 1 million tons, therefore, export volumes have fallen.
