Price of natural gas set to go up
The state-owned company Bulgargaz again demanded that the price of natural gas be increased by more than 20% within a week. As of September 1, there is no effective price for natural gas, because the previously proposed increase of 15% was stopped due to a check.
No violations were found and the company will be able to start issuing invoices to the industry tonight at the new higher price, the company explained. They expect the Energy and Water Regulatory Commission to pronounce so that they can legalise the price for district heating and gas distribution companies.
Temenuzhka Petkova, Minister of Energy: Colleagues have established that this price has been formed correctly, the contract between Bulgargaz and Gazprom has been observed, and the price for regulating the price of natural gas has been observed. All components that form the price of natural gas are correctly determined and the price of BGN 22.46 offered by Bulgargaz is correctly determined.
