_______________

 

 

Pursuant to Articles 2 and 3 of the Understanding on the Interpretation of Article XVII of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade 1994, Costa Rica herewith submits its replies to the Questionnaire on State Trading, corresponding to the periods 2002-2003, 2003-2004, 2004‑2005, 2006-2007, 2007-2008, 2008-2009 and the years 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013, with regard to the Refinadora Costarricense de Petróleo S.A.

REPLIES TO THE QUESTIONNAIRE ON STATE TRADING

Refinadora Costarricense de Petróleo S.A. (RECOPE)
(Period from July 2002 to December 2013)

ENUMERATION OF STATE TRADING ENTERPRISES

The Refinadora Costarricense de Petróleo S.A. has a monopoly on the importation, refining and wholesale distribution of crude oil, fuels derived from oil, asphalt and naphtha. RECOPE is a state trading enterprise which was established as a joint stock company. All of its shares are held by the State. It is a legal person regulated, as far as its commercial activities are concerned, by private law.

 

The list of products marketed by RECOPE and their tariff headings is as follows:

REASON AND PURPOSE OF INTRODUCING AND MAINTAINING STATE TRADING ENTERPRISES

RECOPE has the exclusive right to manage the State monopoly on the importation, refining and wholesale distribution of crude oil and derivatives in order to satisfy domestic demand. This right is derived from Law No. 5508 of 8 April 1974 and Law No. 7356 of 24 August 1993 (ratification of the above-mentioned State monopoly administered by RECOPE).

 

The importation and marketing of fuels is a strategic national interest. State intervention guarantees effective control over fuel price policies; fuel prices in turn have a powerful impact on the stability of the prices of a wide range of other goods and services, hence even a slight increase in fuel prices is enough to appreciably affect inflation. It follows that, through the intermediary of RECOPE, the State performs an important social function, namely to maintain macroeconomic stability. Likewise, RECOPE must take proper account of the needs relating to the country's energy programme.

DESCRIPTION OF THE FUNCTIONING OF STATE TRADING ENTERPRISES

The monopoly held by RECOPE consists firstly in the exclusive right to import and refine all crude oil and oil byproducts, and secondly in exclusive wholesale fuel distribution rights. In this connection, and in accordance with Executive Decree No. 24943-MINAE of 13 January 1996, wholesale sales are defined, for the purposes of establishing the distribution monopoly, in terms of the following minimum volumes:

Article 4 of the Regulation under Law No. 6588 (law regulating the activity, objectives and other aspects of RECOPE), provides that RECOPE may sell oil and oil derivatives abroad, provided that domestic market requirements are guaranteed. In addition to the above, it should be pointed out that, with regard to hydrocarbon exploration and production (national oilfields), Article 36 of the Hydrocarbons Law provides that such production shall be used as a matter of priority to cover domestic requirements and the national reserve. These requirements are determined by the Executive, through the Ministry of Natural Resources, Energy and Mining, and every contractor is obliged to sell to the State the amount of output required to satisfy domestic market needs. Accordingly and in view of the monopoly managed by RECOPE, the output of national oilfields must be sold to RECOPE on a priority basis.

 

Furthermore, Article 6 of Law No. 6588 of 30 June 1981 provides that RECOPE may participate individually or jointly in tendering procedures organized by the Directorate-General of Hydrocarbons for the exploration and production of hydrocarbons, in accordance with the provisions of the Hydrocarbons Law.

 

RECOPE imports, processes and markets all the crude oil and derivatives consumed domestically in Costa Rica and exported (the country does not produce oil). On the basis of its yearly demand estimates, RECOPE buys crude oil and finished products on the international market. Import quantities are determined on the basis of local demand and the refining and storage capacity of RECOPE plants. Export levels are set principally in the light of storage capacity and the  size of shipments.

 

With regard to import prices and resale prices for imported products, RECOPE purchases crude oil and oil byproducts on the international market on the basis of strict market criteria. These are determined by reference to international market prices in the Caribbean and on the United States Gulf Coast. RECOPE does not negotiate import contracts; these have a one-year limit and prices are negotiated each year in the light of price fluctuations on the international oil market.

 

Article 4 of Law No. 5508 provides that, given RECOPE's status as a public enterprise (carrying with it certain general prerogatives and privileges which it enjoys exclusively or in conjunction with all other public entities) the Ministry of Finance is authorized, on the State's behalf and under its responsibility, to give RECOPE the guarantee(s) it needs to obtain financing for its working capital, provided that the total amount does not exceed US$5,000,000.00 (five million US dollars). To this end, approval must be obtained from the Central Bank of Costa Rica and loans must be negotiated with leading banks and institutions.

 

Lastly, RECOPE has an obligation, which also takes the form of a right, to engage in an activity related to its principal, statutory and routine corporate activity when situations arise requiring the efficient and effective supply of fuels in the national interest. This obligation and right is derived directly from Article 5.1 of Law No. 5508, which in turn comes within the framework of the public objectives assigned to RECOPE. For example, RECOPE would be required to engage in wholesale distribution activity when there is a need for an effective supply at that level and development of the activity is affected by serious or unexpected problems.

RECOPE calculates fuel prices on the basis of the principle of service at cost, pursuant to Article 3(b) of Law No. 7593 (Public Services Act); these must be approved by the Public Services Regulatory Authority (ARESEP, formerly SNE, the National Electricity Service), in accordance with Laws No. 6588 and No. 7593. Export sales prices are set by RECOPE on the basis of prescribed formulae which take both local prices and prices on other markets into consideration; these are not controlled by the ARESEP.

 

In conclusion, as regards market structure, RECOPE - as mentioned earlier - has a monopoly on the importation and domestic distribution of petroleum products given that it was granted exclusive statutory powers to these ends. The situation is different with regard to exports, since any natural or legal person who buys products from RECOPE can resell them for export to another country. However, this type of transaction is not at all common.
