PMÚ confirms Sk300 mln. fine for Slovnaft

Slovakia's Anti-Trust Bureau (PMÚ) has confirmed it is fining Slovak oil refinery Slovnaft Sk300 million (€8.92-million) for abusing its dominant position on the market, the authority said on January 2.

Slovakia's Anti-Trust Bureau (PMÚ) has confirmed it is fining Slovak oil refinery Slovnaft Sk300 million (€8.92-million) for abusing its dominant position on the market, the authority said on January 2.

According the PMÚ, Slovnaft has been gouging its corporate clients. For example, in 2005, SHELL Slovakia was charged a higher wholesale price for petrol than OMV, despite the fact that the former purchased a larger amount of fuel than the latter. The refiner is also accused of using discriminatory discounts on diesel in the same year.

Slovnaft has called the fine unfair and says it will contest it in the regional court. TASR
