Kazakhstan to import over one million tons of gasoline from Russia
In the current year Kazakhstan will deliver 1 million 100 thousand tons of gasoline and 520 thousand tons of diesel fuel from Russia, vice-Minister of Energy of Kazakhstan Aset Magauov said.
In 2017 Kazakhstan plans to get 1 million 100 thousand tons of gasoline from the Russian Federation. Today the issue of delivery to domestic market of the republic in September-October of 110 thousand tons of gasoline of brand Ai-92-93 and diesel fuel of 100 thousand tons of the Russian production is handled, BNews.kz correspondent reports.
"By indicative balance we have provided that from the Russian Federation we will deliver 1 million 100 thousand tons of gasoline, 520 thousand of diesel fuel. Dynamics of deliveries satisfactory. On gasoline, we think, somewhere around one million. On diesel fuel because in general production in Kazakhstan has increased, there can not be such requirement. Most likely we will take around 450 thousand tons of diesel fuel, instead of 520 thousand tons," vice-Minister of Energy of Kazakhstan Aset Magauov said.
As of September 18 of the current year on domestic market of the republic more than 49 thousand tons of high-octane gasolines are shipped. Meanwhile, in August and September decrease in reserves of fuel on oil depots of the republic was observed.
