Poland Will Present Proposed Hydrocarbon Tax Bill On June 13'

WARSAW--Poland's Environment Ministry will present its long-awaited proposal on how to tax hydrocarbon production in the country, including gas and oil extracted from shale rocks, on June 13, the ministry said in a statement Friday.

On that day the ministry will begin consultations with other ministries, as well as local communities and the affected sector, the ministry said.

In addition to a proposal on how to tax hydrocarbon production, both conventional and unconventional, the draft law will address how municipal governments' can reap benefits from upstream activity in their jurisdictions.
