Independent filling stations have not enough petrol

The authorities in a number of regions of Siberia, faced shortages of petrol, have had to ask Rosneft and Gazpromneft to increase the supplies to independent filling stations. Market participants argue that the shipment of fuel declined in October due to repair of local refineries, but the oil companies and the Ministry of Energy claim that the independent filling stations didn’t file theier applications in time. According to the Kommersant’s source on the market, the situation may improve after October 20th, when the refineries will complete their repairs.

At the end of last week, the Governors of the Irkutsk and Novosibirsk regions Sergei Eroschenko and Vladimir Gorodetsky appealed to Rosneft and Gazpromneft with a request to increase the supplies of petrol to the independent filling stations. A number of the filling stations in Siberia have stopped the sale of petrol, because they failed to purchase enough fuel. In particular, Kraysneft, which owns 47 filling stations in the Irkutsk region and takes about 15% of the retail fuel market in the region, has stopped sales.
