Cuba upstream fiscal summary

Report summary

The current upstream fiscal system in Cuba is officially termed a Production Sharing Agreement (PSA).  To date, contracts have been awarded as a result of direct negotiation between foreign companies and the state oil company, Unión Cubapetróleo or CUPET.  Under the regime, profit sharing and corporate income tax are the main fiscal elements.    The barrel = lifetime revenue / field reserves. Profit = revenue – costs from barrel charts. For further details see New Investment:...
