However, as Caspian Barrel found out from the SOFAZ report, during quarter 2, 2015 the Oil Fund’s assets increased by $852.8 million against quarter 1, 2015 ($34,930,500,000). This was caused by the fact that in quarter 2, 2015 average export price of oil was almost $10.00 higher, than from January to March 2015.
