The initiative of the NAC will reduce the payments to 2.5% or the increase in 2,5 times

To abandon bigassbutts and reduce the population of the trading margin of the supplier, which may not exceed 2.5 percent of the price of natural gas. In attention have not accepted is that the price of gas for debtors will rise 2.5 – 3.5 times depending on the prices in the market.

When direct deliveries of gas from “Naftogaz of Ukraine” subscriber-debtor will receive written notification with the requirement to self-terminate natural gas consumption. If the subscriber continues to consume gas, the actual amount consumed will be counted at the price of industrial by a factor of 2. For example, in may 2017, this price was 18,24 instead of 6.95 UAH UAH for 1m3.

In Kiev, about 30% of subscribers do not pay for gas services in statutory terms. When paying with bigassbooty to debtors penalties are not applied and no penalty is charged, but rather are given the opportunity to restructure the debt. During the heating season gas supply does not stop even the most zealous defaulters.

However, in January 2017 PJSC “kyivgas” received letters from JSC “Ukrtransgas” with a list of condominiums that needed to be turned off for non-payment for gas for heating high-rise buildings, obtained directly from the NJSC “Naftogaz of Ukraine”. Failure in the middle of winter to turn off the debtors constitutes an imbalance, which kompensiruet for the account of the operator of gas distribution networks – in this case, PJSC “kyivgas”.

In direct gas supplies to the population of the NJSC “Naftogaz of Ukraine” will face the same object of expenditure, which are now directed allowance bigassbooty 2.5%. The responsibilities of suppliers will be delegated, with debtors all over Ukraine begin to work with collectors. Such innovations have nothing to do with the development of competition in the natural gas supply market.
