Oil Exports Examined

MOSCOW () -- British-Russian oil joint venture Balkar-Trading could find its export privileges tightened, Interfax quoted Russian Economics Ministry officials as saying.

But a source at Balkar-Trading said Thursday that any new p decrees would not find government support.

Interfax said the ministry was preparing to replace two cabinet decrees last year granting the venture rights to export oil in deals giving Russia loans on favorable terms.
