Maersk's oil discount could hurt 1,300 exporters

A number of export companies will be the ones to pay for the new North Sea deal secured by oil companies. This makes one corporate executive "hopping mad".

Danish politicians have dropped a loan pool worth DKK 10 billion (EUR 1.34 billion) for export firms and this will impact 1,300 exporters. The decision to do so was part of the Danish government's North Sea agreement, triggering major tax discounts for oil companies including the Maersk Group's Maersk Oil.

The new deal could cost small firms a lot of money, which makes one exporter "hopping mad", reports Danish daily Børsen.
