Oil industry workers can give compensation for the supply of fuel in the DFO

Oil industry workers can give compensation for the supply of fuel in the DFO

The Russian government proposes to introduce additional compensation to oil refineries for fuel supplies to the Far East. Given the shortage of refining capacity in the Far Eastern Federal District, the authorities want to stimulate refineries from other regions to increase supplies to the east.

According to the Deputy Head of FAS, Anatoly Golomolzin, these measures will help create equal opportunities for fuel supplies to the DFO market. Additional compensation will be given to companies that will supply diesel and gasoline, as well as produce them in the region. According to Kommersant, the amount of compensation may be no more than five thousand rubles per ton.

At present, only two large refineries are operating in the Far East - Rosneft in Komsomolsk-on-Amur and Neftegazholding in Khabarovsk. Last year, they together produced 1,1 million tons of gasoline and 2,5 million tons of diesel fuel. With an increase in fuel supplies of two million tons, the budget will have to compensate ten billion rubles for an additional damper. At the same time, the Ministry of Finance will have to compensate all the shortfall in income due to the increase in the mineral extraction tax and excise taxes.

Last week to sort out the problem soaring prices on fuel in the Far East, ordered the Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev. The reason was the message that gasoline prices in the DFO reached maximum values.
