Moldovagaz pays January bill to Gazprom


Moldovagaz has fully paid Gazprom for the natural gas supplied in the first half of January. Today’s amount of $34.4 million is the latest and final installment of the $63 million owed for the respective period, Moldovagaz said in press release.

“This has been possible thanks to the support of the Moldovan Government, including the allocation of 469 million lei in advance for partial subsidies for the gas consumed by households, the deferral of VAT payments to the state budget, and the transfers made to Energocom”, said the utility.

The Government was able to offer this assistance after earlier today Parliament decreed a state of emergency for a period of 60 days in connection with the gas crisis.
