Fuel Overview

Kyrgyzstan, being a land-lock country with no oil reserves, is heavily dependent on import of fuel from the region, mainly from Russia (approximately 90% of total imports of fuel and lubricants). Fuel in limited amount is also imported from Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. The main importer of the fuel in Kyrgyzstan are the  local branches of Gazprom of Russia, which has wide range of fuel stations throughout the country. Gazprom also trades fuel to ten main local traders who further distribute the fuel and lubricants in country.

The Anti-Monopoly Regulation Agency of Kyrgyzstan monitors fuel prices and analyses the structures of the open and liberal downstream sector. The Agency only regulates prices for monopolistic companies. Although, according to an internet article, there were concerns that the main petrol company Gazprom has a quasi-monopolistic position. Fuel prices are not regulated as of May 2011.
