"The Authority has followed this market closely for several years. The Authority started monitoring the fuel market in 2016 following an assessment, which indicated that competition in this market did not function well. As part of its monitoring, the Authority has requested market players to submit market data to the Authority twice a year, including their prices, sales volumes and purchasing terms.

"The opening of an investigation does not imply that the companies involved have infringed the Competition Act. The Authority will now collect further information, with a view to assess whether or not the suspected anti-competitive practices constitute a violation of the Competition Act," Skjæveland points out.
