Kazakhstan has extended the ban for diesel fuel imports from Russia and raised prices for petrol

​Kazakhstan has extended the temporary ban for diesel fuel import by railway from Russia.

The ban was introduced from May 20th until June 20th 2015.

The ban for diesel fuel and petrol import was introduced on March 5th 2015 due to the overstocking of the oil refinery plants of Kazakhstan caused by the grown import of oil products from Russia. Kazakhstan extended the ban for diesel fuel import on April 20th 2015. The growth, in particular, was caused by the rouble’s fall that made the Russian fuel more attractive by price. In late Jan the Minister of Energy of Kazakhstan, V. Shkolnik, said that the import of cheap petrol from Russia might lead to the shutdown of the Kazakh oil refinery plants. Later the ban for petrol was removed.
