Ministry of Energy attempted to oblige oilmen to buy gasoline abroad in the event of a shortage - Kommersant
The Ministry of Energy tried for the first time to take new tough measures to provide the country with fuel, obliging oil workers to buy gasoline abroad in the event of a shortage. This was reported by the Kommersant newspaper with reference to sources in the fuel market.
“Formally, such orders are tied to the fulfillment of obligations under agreements on the modernization of refineries. So far only Gazprom has received the order - and only by 20 thousand tons per month. The industry is expecting an early improvement in the fuel situation, so the new tool is unlikely to be actively used, ”the newspaper notes.
According to the source of the newspaper, Rosneft has not yet been asked for such deliveries: “a swap scheme with diesel fuel and gasoline for the Far East is being discussed with FAS, but there is no talk about import.”
