Integrites has the honor to bring to your attention the following information, which we hope may be useful in your company activities.
The ban on the import of diesel fuel from the Russian Federation via the railways was imposed in accordance with the order of the Minister of Energy of the Republic of Kazakhstan, dated April 16, 2015, № 287.The duration of the ban on the import of fuel (code ТН ВЭД ЕАЭС 2710 19 350 0, 2710 19 480 0) is one month, which starts from 20 April and ends on 20 May 2015.It should be noted that earlier the Ministry introduced a temporary ban on imports of gasoline and diesel fuel from the Russian Federation, which has expired on April 20 of this year.
The ban was introduced with the aim of regulation of domestic fuel market, where a situation has become more complicated due to the large influx of cheap gasoline and diesel fuel from the Russian Federation at the beginning of this year. The flow of cheap petroleum products from the Russian Federation was due to the weakening of the ruble and that is considered as one of the negative factors that may affect the operation of oil refineries in the Republic of Kazakhstan.
