The report "About competitive situation and pricing in the oil markets and oil products"


In the world goods markets there are serious basic changes. The most important changes affecting both technology of trade, and forming of general market conditions, are characteristic of the markets of exchange goods. In world trade by raw materials oil and its derivatives continue to play the dominating role.

Taking into account these circumstances Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS Russia) and the Austrian Federal Competitive Department (AFCD) were initiators of creation in 2011 within Interstate council on the antimonopoly policy of the international Working group on studying of questions of pricing in the oil markets and oil products (further - the Working group).

In 2012-2013 five meetings of the Working group, part in which was taken by representatives of Kazakhstan, Russia, Ukraine, Austria, Great Britain, Germany, Portugal, the USA, etc., took place. Meetings of the Working group allowed to exchange within active dialogue opinions on urgent aspects of pricing on oil and oil products in the world markets, to discuss questions of ensuring the competition in the oil markets and oil products, the organization and procedures of carrying out the exchange biddings.

Special attention of the Working group was paid on activities of the world price agencies. Results of their activities influence as the markets of available goods - oil and oil products, and the markets of derivative financial instruments.

Became obvious that the overflow of free money between the oil exchanges and financial centers turned the international oil trade into one of the main factors of impact on the course and the direction of reproduction in global scales.

No wonder therefore that questions of monitoring and regulation of the financial and goods markets are in their interconnection in sight of "Group of Twenty" (G 20). The corresponding instructions were given to G 20 International organization of the commission on securities (IOSCO) - the organization combining finance regulators of the countries of the world (1). Following the results of the work IOSCO formulated, in particular, recommendations for activities of the world price agencies.

One more important element of the market is efficiency of use of the automated system of data collection and processing.

Following the results of monitoring information on price performance on oil products becomes available for a wide range of users. Results of such monitoring make basis for adoption of the decision by antimonopoly authority by hearing of cases about antitrust violation, and also considerations of transactions of merge and acquisition. Similar systems are applied in Russia, Ukraine, Austria, the USA and other countries.

Results of activities of the Working group during 2013 were reported at meetings of Interstate council on the antimonopoly policy in Minsk (Republic of Belarus) and Irkutsk (Russian Federation), in Paris (France) within the committee meeting on the competition of Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), and also in July, 2013 in Geneva (Switzerland) during the meeting of the Intergovernmental group of experts on the competitive legislation and policy of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD).

It was shown that the world prices influence the prices in the national markets of both the large, and small states, both importing countries, and exporting countries of oil and oil products. The analysis of pricing has therefore great value both for separate industries, and for the states in general.

Experience of activities of the Working group and experience of creation of commercial infrastructure of the market of oil products are useful and significant for forming of favorable conditions as on national, and the world oil markets and oil products.

This Report is prepared following the results of the researches conducted by the Working group and the presentations at the forums stated above.
