In 2018, the tariffs for gas will certainly increase. This requires the current methodology for the recalculation Ryabtsev

Gas prices in Ukraine were to increase at the beginning of this heating season, said in comments to the edition «GORDON» the expert in the energy sector Gennady Ryabtsev.

«If there is a revised methodology for setting tariffs, we can expect rising gas prices. It was going to happen in the beginning of the heating season. Dynamics of prices for gas are still unknown, so we can only guess how prices will rise. If Ukraine considers itself as a country with a market economy, the practice of revision in gas prices is not only allowed, but encouraged. Another thing that the consumer needs to understand why increasing the price. That is, he must see that there are objective factors, not just the desire and energy monopolists. But, unfortunately, our consumer understands little about why such bills gets. This factor to their advantage using opposition forces,» – said Ryabtsev.

According to him, this year the cost of gas will be increased.

«The established tariffs and subsidies do not encourage consumers to save resources. Also they do not stimulate companies to reduce costs. If we talk about the monetization of subsidies, it is for enterprises. It’s a laugh. In the Cabinet decision no mention of the monetization for consumers. To determine and substantiate the increase in gas prices, we need to see how they grow up. But in 2018, the tariffs for gas will certainly increase. This requires the current methodology for the conversion,» – said Ryabtsev.

From 1 April 2017 in Ukraine for the population and heating utilities operates the gas price set in the amount of 6957,9 UAH per 1000 m3.

In July, the Naftogaz of Ukraine has proposed to increase the rate of almost 19%. In September, Prime Minister of Ukraine Vladimir Groisman said that the price of gas for the population, on the contrary, will be reduced.

In the end, the rate has not changed.




In 2018, the tariffs for gas will certainly increase. This requires the current methodology for the recalculation Ryabtsev 16.01.2018
