– “Transneft” considers the decision of the Federal Antimonopoly service (FAS) on the reduction of tariffs on oil transportation to China via Kazakhstan unjustified and selective in favor of Rosneft, told reporters the head of “Transneft” Nikolay Tokarev.
According to him, this issue is submitted for consideration of the state Commission on fuel and energy complex on December 20. “In our view, the situation is abnormal, and unwarranted, it is surprising the decision of the FAS on this issue,” – said Tokarev.
“I hope that on December 20 the government Commission, where the question is submitted, it will be made a fair decision. The fact that it is abnormal and unreasonable, it is already obvious. The selectivity in favor of “Rosneft” says only that at the expense of the state company “Transneft” plans to arrange his Affairs, a state company. “Rosneft” in the sale of 19% stake argued that it is non-state”, – he stressed.
“That is the problem of non-state companies settled due to the state by way of damages in the amount of 1.2 billion rubles,” – said Tokarev. “We want justice, this is a direct damage. I hope that sanity will prevail,” – said Tokarev.
Earlier FAS has reduced the tariff for oil transportation to China via Kazakhstan by 16.7% compared to the current. In General, the tariffs for services “Transneft” in 2018 increased by 4% despite the fact that Transneft asked for a raise of 21%.
