G7 Coalition Agrees $60 Per Barrel Price Cap For Russian Oil

(MENAFN- Trend News Agency)

The Group of Seven (G7) nations and Australia on Friday said they had agreed a $60 per barrel price cap on Russian seaborne crude oil after European Union members overcame resistance from Poland and hammered out a political agreement earlier in the day, trend reports citing reuters .

The EU agreed the price after holdout Poland gave its support, paving the way for formal approval over the weekend.

The G7 and Australia said in a statement the price cap would take effect on Dec. 5 or very soon thereafter.

The nations said they anticipated that any revision of the price would include a form of grandfathering to allow compliant transactions concluded before the change.

'The Price Cap Coalition may also consider further action to ensure the effectiveness of the price cap,' the statement read. No details were immediately available on what further actions could be taken.
