  1. Republic of Congo—Oil Revenue Certification—Process and Summary Results (2003 to Sept. 2004) Anton Op de Beke International Monetary Fund/PDR February 3, 2005

  2. The Oil Revenu Certification Process How it works: • Contracted and financed by government • Carried out by international accounting firm • Not an audit but review process; “agreed upon procedures” • Published on Ministry of Finance website (www.mefb-cg.org) • Done quarterly; completed by end of following quarter; accruals • Tracks income from each permit/field separately • Tracks payments in oil under production sharing contract • Monitors SNPC compliance with reporting requirements • Covers only recurrent revenue (royalty, profit oil, excess oil)

  3. Certification--Step Towards EITI In common with EITI: • Publication of oil revenue information More than EITI: • Quarterly reports • Assesses collection process (from payments to receipts) Less than EITI: • Omits important benefit streams * national oil company (SNPC) equity oil (15% shares) * bonuses, income from legal actions or privatizations * contractual payments (training, verification) • No civil society participation • Receipts not compared with company payments

  4. Exercise in Reconciliation and Verification Reconciled or verified - Production (companies, terminals, Veritas) • Fiscal parameters of oil contracts (against contracts; sampled) • Fiscal oil payments (companies, terminals) • Government shipments and stocks (terminals, SNPC) • Reference prices (companies, price setting meeting) • Payments (SNPC, companies, bank accounts, projects) • Based on company declarations of production and sharing • Based on SNPC info for sales results Not reconciled or verified - Complete contracts (only on sample basis) - Treasury bank accounts - SNPC information on prices, borrowing, and fees and commissions

  11. Ways to Follow up Certification Extend certification process: • Verify SNPC information • Achieve EITI coverage (include non-recurrent revenue, equity oil) • Compare government and company statements Improve revenue tax administration: - Reconcile certification results with fiscal data (TOFE) • Clarify and/or correct past discrepancies, and prevent future discrepancies • Make certifications redundant with government audits Exercise control over marketing process: • Obtain better prices and reduce marketing costs • Reduce cost of financing
