Urals oil exported from the ports of the Baltic and Black Seas costs about $75 per barrel. The rise in prices has been linked to broader geopolitical dynamics.

The G7 cap requires any Western company transporting Russian oil to obtain a so-called certification, a document certifying that the cargo is worth $60 a barrel or less. If this is not the case, they have no right to provide their services.

Although Urals oil has remained above $60 for almost the entire year, this monthly jump beyond $70 calls into question the credibility of these certificates for traders.

When Urals oil arrives in India, its purchase price is $88 per barrel, just $3.80 lower than Brent oil. Other Russian ESPO oil, which is exported from ports in eastern Russia, costs $84 per barrel.
