Dependence of Kazakhstan on Russian oil products may last till 2019

Kazakhstan may remain dependent on Russian oil products till 2019, a senior analyst of the Agency for Investment Profitability Research (AIPR) Artem Ustimenko said.
According to him, now more than one-third (1.36 million tons) of petrol, consumed in Kazakhstan, and about 14% (0.7 million tons) of diesel fuel fall on imports from Russia.
"The dependence on imports of Russian oil products will be seen until the completion of the modernization of domestic refineries in 2016, although these dates may be shifted to the 2018-2019," – the interlocutor stated. Ustimenko notes that the increase in gasoline prices in Kazakhstan was expected. "The increase of the marginal retail price of oil products became an anticipated forced step against the background of the increasing risk of a sustainable deficit on the domestic market of fuels and lubricants on certain categories of light vehicle fuel, especially high-octane gasoline," - the interlocutor says.

Ministry of Energy criticizes new proposals of Ministry of Finance on taxes for oil companies

Tax manoeuvre in the oil industry, prepared by the Ministry of Finance, will lead to an increased burden on the industry and will have "serious adverse effects"; besides, the proposed increase of excise duties on oil products will lead to a further rise in the prices of light oil products by 2% or by 0.5 rubles per liter. This was announced by a representative of the Ministry of Energy.
According to the analysis, carried out by the Ministry of Energy, the adoption of the Finance Ministry’s proposals to increase the severance tax rate to 775 rubles and excise taxes on almost all types of oil products in 2015 will have a serious negative impact on the industry in 2017,"- the RIA Novosti’s interlocutor said.

In September, Kazakh oil refineries can increase oil processing by 90,000 – 100,000 tons

Kazmunai Gas and the Ministry of Energy of Kazakhstan analyze the ability for the increase in oil processing at the state oil refineries by 90,000 – 100,000 tons in September, for the satisfying of the internal consumption on the background of the economic lack of efficiency of oil products imports.
Now they operate in Kazakhstan 3 major oil refineries with total yield of 1.9 million tons of petrol of the AI-92 sort and 4 million tons of diesel fuel. Currently Kazakhstan consumes 2.8 million tons of petrol of AI-92 sort and 4.6 million tons of diesel fuel.
Usually, the deficiency between production and supplies is covered with oil products supplies from Russia. Every year Russia and Kazakhstan close the indicative balance setting the volume of fuel imported to Kazakhstan from the RF on the duty-free basis. All the excess supplies will be charged with export duty.
For prevention of outstripping of the oil product indicative balance, KMGO was assigned as the sole operator for oil product supply from the RF since June 2014.
The company claims that the oil product indicative balance for 2014 is 470,000 tons of diesel fuel and 670,800 tons of AI-92, however, oil product imports to Kazakhstan were 306,800 tons of AI-92 petrol by May 2014 instead of the planned 263,800 tons.
Without restrictions from the state, by the autumn the Kazakh consumers would have to pay for petrol on a price involving duty. At the end of July, the embargo for imports from Russia was lifted in connection with the market situation of those days.
Since June 2014, oil product prices rapidly increased in Russia. Within the period, the FAS of the RF imposed the restriction on petrol exports in order to avoid its deficiency at the RF internal market in connection with the breakdown at the Achinsk oil refinery, the only one in the Krasnoyarsk region, and other factors.
