Облгазам запретили проводить доначисления за газ

Most operators of gas distribution networks in October carried out donachislenie consumers volumes of gas to an average of 1.5%.

The national Commission exercising state regulation in the energy sector, banned the operators of the gas distribution system to conduct additional bills for gas. About this Facebook said the Chairman NKREKU Oksana Krivenko.

“The monitoring of the market showed that the vast majority of operators of gas distribution networks in the payment documents for October of this year carried out donachislenie domestic consumers volumes of gas on average to 1.5%, taking into account the difference in the reduction to the standard conditions,” she said.

According to her, the gas metering station at the point of transfer of gas from the transmission system to the distribution system in automatic mode perform measurements under standard conditions (20 ℃), but the gas meters in domestic consumers do not carry out such a temperature correction of the volume and measured at the actual ambient temperature .

“That is if we consider the example when the actual ambient temperature within 5 ℃ of industrial-technological losses of operators timing is 51 cubic meter (1000 cubic m – 949 cubic meters),” – said Krivenko.

She also noted that the amount of such losses calculated in accordance with the procedure approved by the Ministry of energy. NKREKU when calculating the rate took into account the volume loss of timing operators, which were approved by the Ministry of energy.

The national Commission decided to hold the legal regulation of this problem through amendments to the Law of Ukraine On the natural gas market by changing the standard conditions in terms of temperature from 20 ℃ to 0 ℃. These standards apply in all EU countries.


The national Commission also recommended that the Ministry of energy to meet the requirements of the law of Ukraine On the natural gas market, to develop the necessary technical regulations and to make the transition to the measurement of natural gas in energy units.

As reported, on the eve of Prime Minister Vladimir Groisman will appeal to the national Commission with the request to limit the increase of tariffs for heat supply in the regions.
