The restriction will again affect gasoline, diesel fuel and a number of petroleum products.
Kazakhstan will extend the ban on the export of petroleum products outside the country by road for another 6 months.
Energy Minister M. Mirzagaliyev announced this on September 13 at a government meeting.
“The issue of extending the order for another 6 months is being considered, which provides for a ban on the export of gasoline , diesel fuel and other certain types of oil products by road outside Kazakhstan,” said M. Mirzagaliyev.
Recall that Kazakhstan introduced a restriction on May 9, 2021. The
authorities banned the export of gasoline, diesel fuel and certain types of petroleum products by road for 6 months (EAEU TN VED 2709, 2710, 2902, 3403, 3811, 3826 – among them light oil products – IF- TO).
At the same time, the ban does not apply to lubricating oils , to export in gas tanks provided by the manufacturer of automobile vehicles and installed in accordance with technical conditions.
You can also take out the fuel in a separate container with a volume of no more than 20 liters.
It was noted that the restrictions were introduced to prevent a shortage of petroleum products in the domestic market.
Prior to this, a similar ban was introduced in November 2019,
however, it also extended to lubricating oils.
This ban was lifted in April 2020.
