Establish transparent and equitable rules on access to refineries for refining purposes

OPOs problem questions

Lack of equal access to refineries and monopolization of the oil products market
Absence of a transparent mechanism for quota distribution and access to trunk pipelines and transport infrastructure in the oil export case
Decline in OPOs production entails an increase in the Competent Authority's obligation to supply oil to the domestic market in percentage terms (70% or more)
Loss of profits caused by lower domestic market prices, which OPOs could have invested in maintaining output levels and restocking the resource base
