The committee said that it referred to international oil prices, which showed that the cost of a barrel of crude Brent oil went up to $64.19 in December compared to $62.59 in November, Petra reported.
All derivatives are subject to a JD0.006 stamp fee, in addition to other fixed fees related to transport, storage and insurance.
