The National Agency for Energy Regulation (NAER) on Friday will examine the request to increase the natural gas rates made by SA “Moldovagaz”, IPN reports.
The supplier asks for a rate of 27,665 lei/1,000 m3 without VAT at the exit points of low pressure natural gas distribution pipelines as from October 1.
According to the Agency, the increase in the purchase price of gas since June is the main factor invoked by the supplier. “The purchase price of natural gas paid by SA “Moldovagaz” to “Gazprom” rose from 851 $/1,000 m3 for the volume of natural gas consumed in June to 1,459 $/1,000 m3 for the natural gas consumed in August and to 1,883 $/1,000 m3 for that consumed in September 2022,” the regulator noted in a press release.
The meeting to examine the request starts at 10am.
