Sergey Kondratiev, Deputy Head of the Economic Department commented to the internet portal "Nakanune" on a possible transition to the united boiler tariff for Tyumen and Kurgan regions.
Tyumen Oblast, Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug and Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug postponed the transition to a common united boiler tariff with the Kurgan region. The initiative, which was supposed to redistribute the load on consumers within the regions and reduce the cost of electricity in the Trans-Urals, stumbled over the position of the Governor of Yugra, Natalya Komarova. In the opinion of the head of the Autonomous Okrug, the consequences for Western Siberia will be more significant than it is announced now. In this regard, tariffs in all four regions were set without taking into account the merger. However, as insiders assure, the decision will still be made in 2021, and the dissenting regions will be "pushed" through the Government of Russia and the FAS. Details - in the material Nakanune.RU.
However, the fears of Natalya Komarova are also not groundless. The fact is that the main consumers in the constituent entity are enterprises of the oil and gas sector, they account for the lion's share of productive supply, and, therefore, it is they who will most acutely feel even minor price fluctuations.
According to Sergei Kondratiev, the analyst at the Institute for Energy and Finance, a favorable situation has now developed on the oil market, because of which the new financial burden will not become critical for them, however, the unwillingness of oil workers to incur additional costs is also understandable.
