PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, September 19 (Itar-Tass) — Energy companies of Russia’s Kamchatka Territory will ship energy carriers – fuel oil and coal – by reduced rail tariffs, the region’s governor, Vladimir Ilyukhin, told reporters on Monday.
“The board of the Federal Tariffs Service has taken a decision to set until the end of 2011 exclusive rail tariffs for companies providing the energy and thermal supply to the Kamchatka Territory,” he said noting that this will allow to reduce fuel oil deliveries to the region by 600 roubles (approximately 20 dollars) per tonne and partially compensate for the growth of petroleum products on the domestic market.
To curb the growth of tariffs of energy supplying companies the region’s government will take further efforts and address to the Federal Tariffs Service with a request to extend reduced tariffs for Kamchatka’s energy companies for 2012, Ilyukhin said.
