State-owned companies and agencies will be transferred to purchase fuel at market prices
The Deputy head of the Federal Antimonopoly service (FAS) Anatoly Golomolzin told “Izvestia” that to the end of 2018, natural monopolies, state companies and agencies will be transferred to purchase fuel at market prices. According to experts, the implementation of the plans of the Antimonopoly Agency will help save the Treasury up to 30 billion rubles per year.
Now contracts can be concluded through tenders on the open circuit, when the price of delivery is determined by the competition of bidders. FAS proposes to link the maximum value of contracts to market indices.
As have explained “news” the head of the control TEK FAS Dmitry Makhonin, the service developed an appropriate method for determining prices, which is based on the average exchange fuel cost per month before deliveries.
In the near future the methodology will be submitted for approval to the Central Bank. According to Makhonina, FAS has already held talks with major oil companies who typically win the largest tenders for the supply of fuel.
