The National Commission for Energy, Housing and Utilities Services Regulation (NCER) has introduced the entry-exit tariff system for the gas transport system (GTS) from April.
The regulator made the decision in Kyiv on March 28.
The new tariffs are calculated using the methods approved by the commission in December 2015. The methods take into account the depreciation of the GTS until 2019 (until the contract between Naftogaz Ukrainy and Gazprom expires). When the contract expires, the tariff would considerably decline.
Representatives of gas producers and metal companies of Ukraine criticized the proposed tariffs at the commission meeting, naming them the highest in Europe. (Interfax-Ukraine/Business World Magazine)
