The Federal Antimonopoly service of Russia initiated proceedings in relation to a unified heat supply organization (ETO) «LUKOIL-Astrakhanenergo» for the avoidance of services of heat supply, said the Minister.

In December last year, the MUP of the city of Astrakhan Kolos appealed to the FAS with a complaint of «LUKOIL-Astrakhanenergo», which denied the conclusion of the contract of rendering of services in transfer of heat. By law, the contract of rendering of services in transfer of thermal energy between the heat distribution organization and ETO (dominates) is mandatory. During the proceedings, the FAS identified signs of violating the Antimonopoly law and has ordered the «daughter» of «LUKOIL» within 15 days to take action to remedy the situation.

«LUKOIL-Astrakhanenergo» in time, the warning is not fulfilled. In addition, challenged it in court, but the first instance has confirmed legitimacy of FAS warning.

«FAS Russia initiated a case against the company on grounds of violation of the law on protection of competition. I note that last year, amendments to the law on heat supply, involving deprivation of the status of IT in the case of repeated violations of the law» — are reported words of the FAS Deputy head of the Department Vitaly Korolev.

The company «LUKOIL-astrahanenergo» has not responded to the request of RIA Novosti.

«LUKOIL-Astrakhanenergo» is a major producer of thermal and electric energy in the Astrakhan region. The company operates Astrakhan CHPP-2 and boiler 18.
