Kazakhstan Imposes Ban on Diesel Transportation for Export by Road

Friday 29 March 2019

ALMATY (Interfax-Kazakhstan) — Kazakhstan will introduce a ban on diesel transportation for export by road from April 8.

Last January, Kazakhstan announced to plan to ban for 6 months the export of diesel fuel to the countries of the Eurasian Economic Union. At this occasion, the Minister of Energy, Kanat Bozumbayev, declared that it is necessary for Kazmunaygaz to tighten control over the operation of the oil refineries’ equipment in order to exclude emergency stops, leading to a shortage in the oil products market.

Earlier, Russia and Kazakhstan signed a protocol allowing Kazakhstan to begin exporting gasoline to other countries. Subsequently, Astana hoped to begin supplying gasoline to Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan and bring exports to 1.2 million tons.
