Federal Antimonopoly Service looks into Koltsovo Airport’s case

22 January 2009 (08:29)

Sverdlovsk Region’s division of Federal Antimonopoly Service keeps looking into the case involving Koltsovo Airport of Yekaterinburg, TNK BP Holding, and UNK. The claim against the companies was laid in October 2008 and involved alleged jet fuel price collusion.

The last court hearing resulted in the decision to postpone the processing of the case because of the need to get some data from Ural Federal District’s division of Rostechnadzor (the state environmental, technological, and nuclear safety watchdog). What the court needed to know was whether it was possible to mix up several kinds of fuel. Apart from this, Koltsovo Airport had to provide the court with information on the extent to which its jet fuel storage facilities had been filled throughout the year 2008.

‘What is more, Koltsovo Airport is also suspected of preventing TZK-Ural from entering the jet fuel market within the airport’s premises,’ the spokesperson for Sverdlovsk Region’s division of Federal Antimonopoly Service Marina Yusupova said to an UrBC reporter.
