SIMFEROPOL, April 15. /ITAR-TASS/. The government of Crimea is not going to build oil refineries in the region, Republican Minister of Fuel and Energy Sergei Kolobov told ITAR-TASS on Tuesday.
“I think there is no need in oil refining in Crimea. The region should develop power generation in addition to an alternative one. If it is natural-gas-based electricity generation, then emissions should be minimized. There are rather tight standards in Crimea, therefore the region will not develop oil refining. I am confident that Crimea even should toughen its standards,” the minister said replying to a question on the construction of new facilities in Crimea.
On April 14, First Vice-Premier of the republic, Rustam Temirgaliyev said that now Crimea is fully provided with fuel supplies from other Russian regions. “There is no fuel deficit in the Republic. We are fully provided with fuel by supplies of Russia’s oil trading companies through the Feodosiya-based petroleum storage and distribution centre,” Temirgaliyev said, reaffirming that Crimea would switch into Russia’s gasoline prices from May 1.
