NJSC “Naftogaz” denied information about the growth in Ukraine of tariffs for gas and its distribution and urged not to believe the fakes.
The company announces this on its Facebook page.
According to the head of Naftogaz, Yuriy Vitrenko, certain political forces want to create panic among Ukrainians.
Most likely, it generally starts with the northern neighbor, the aggressor country. It used to be said that people would pay exorbitant prices. But with the help of Naftogaz, the government and the state made it so that people get gas at a price of about 8 UAH. We were frightened by exorbitant heat tariffs, but in reality they will not grow. Now they are frightening with distribution tariffs, ”Vitrenko said.
Why did they talk about tariff increases?
According to Naftogaz, no decisions were made to increase tariffs for the distribution of natural gas, but regional gas companies expressed such a wish.
“But wanting to raise the tariff and implement such intentions are different things,” the message says and notes that such a decision can only be made by the NEURCU market regulator.
The tariff for the gas itself and its transportation are paid separately, since these functions are performed by different companies. Regional gas companies receive money for delivery, since they control the gas distribution networks.
In Ukraine, the tariff for consumers without a supplier has been reduced
The Cabinet of Ministers, by its resolution, reduced the tariff for Ukrainians using the services of the Supplier of Last Hope (PPN) from UAH 16.56. per cubic meter up to UAH 7.96.
This price will be valid only until November 30, 2021, and thus Naftogaz is the PPN in Ukraine.
Earlier we wrote about tariffs from different gas suppliers in Ukraine.
It was also reported that Naftogaz began to independently extract gas from a new Ukrainian well.
