In particular, on 19 March “Naftogaz” published price proposals for gas from April 1, 2019, for consumers.
“In March, ‘Naftogaz’ companies took advantage of the attractive market situation and purchased sufficient volumes of gas to provide household consumers,” stated by “Naftogaz”.
“Given this, ‘Naftogaz of Ukraine’ will reduce the April price for its residential customers in the Kirovograd region and other regions by 2%. Thus, the final price of gas for domestic consumers of ‘Naftogaz’ will be 8.38 UAH per cubic meter instead of 8.55 UAH per cubic meter“ stated in the explanation.
At the same time, industrial consumers of “Naftogaz” will buy gas on a prepaid basis, at a price of 5990 UAH / thousand cubic meters.
The company claims that they managed to reduce the price of gas by reducing their own margins.
