Gazprom Neft will pay 4.7 billion rubles fine.
16 февраля 2011 г.
Rosneft, LUKOIL and TNK-BP agreed with the FAS to reduce fines for overcharging on gasoline in 2009 to 2.1 billion rubles. A Gazprom Neft not agreed and will be forced to pay 4.7 billion rubles.
However, Company "stumbled" in the Supreme Arbitration Court, which ruled in favor of FAS.
The company unsuccessfully appealed to the Russian Constitutional Court. After that, TNK-BP decided to negotiate and reduce fines.
The Supreme Arbitration Court RF could not make a decision contrary to his own position in the TNK-BP, so Gazprom Neft lost in court.
It was correct from the standpoint of commercial law.
But it was wrong from the viewpoint of Russian reality.
The fate of the case was already a foregone conclusion, even for a pro-government companies such as Gazprom Neft.
The company was excluded from the negotiating process with the FAS, lose the opportunity even to agree on reducing the penalties.
If such a decision has been made in respect of the TNK-BP, rather an independent company, the state could receive bonuses from a ruling in favor of the FAS.
But Gazprom Neft is the completely loyal structure, ready at the request of the State to give, to invest any funds. The state simply shifted money from one pocket to another, revealing chastise dedicated structure. Why?
