VLADIVOSTOK, February 10 – RIA Novosti. A new oil refinery (refinery) needs to be built in the Far East to prevent fuel shortages, preferences are planned for those who will implement this project, Deputy Prime Minister and Presidential Envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District Yuri Trutnev told reporters. “A new refinery needs to be built. We will undertake measures to create a special preferential shell for the construction of an oil refinery. Today the situation looks like we have no one willing to build an oil refinery in the Far East. The fuel shortage is about two million tons …: six are needed, four are produced. These are two million tons, which Most of all are delivered by rail, a big problem, “the plenipotentiary said to journalists.
He noted that this does not allow to ensure a competitive price. “It is necessary to build a new plant. And for this it should be profitable for the company. If the company is not profitable, it means that we have incorrectly regulated something in the tax legislation, we will try to regulate it,” he said Trutnev.
