Guidance on transportation revenues (4.4)

In some countries, revenues from the transit of oil, gas and minerals play an important role in the economy. Income from the transport of oil, natural gas and minerals en route to their ultimate market destinations can be difficult to track and therefore vulnerable to misuse or corruption.

The EITI Standard states that where revenues from the transportation of oil, gas and minerals are material, the government and state-owned enterprises (SOEs) are expected to disclose the revenues received.
