Kobolev told how to make gas price lower


Naftogaz suggests to cancel the obligation to sell gas to intermediaries, and to realize it directly to the population. The NAK Naftogaz Ukrainy suggests the Cabinet to cancel obligations of the company to sell gas to intermediaries - regional gases and gazsbytam - and to sell it directly to the population. The head of Naftogaz Andrey Kobolev told about it in interview TCH.ua. "If some regional gas or газсбыт, and it in fact same, are able to convince the private consumer to buy gas from them, and they where will take this gas and will deliver to the consumer – please, it is the competition. Now there is a monopoly of gazsbyt to take gas from Naftogaz on favorable terms. They are obliged to sell all gas to the population, but really all preferential gas gets to this category, it is impossible to check. With us do not pay for the most part of this gas", - he told. Kobolev added that Naftogaz cannot sell to these intermediary companies gas cheaper because so they will put mad losses of the state company. "If we could sell gas directly to the population and this regulation obliging to use gazsbyta were removed, we could sell to the current market situation gas cheaper. Therefore now the problem of reduction of the price of gas for the population of Ukraine is in very simple action – to move away private intermediaries between Naftogaz and the population. And it is only one decision of the government", - he added. Kobolev also explained in spite of the fact that since May 1 there will be the next increase in prices for gas that is the obligation to the International Monetary Fund, in the IMF are ready to increase cancellation if there is a refusal of regulation. "As far as we know, position of the IMF is as follows: or you go according to the schedule and raise the prices, or you in general do not regulate gas price. Choose... Elimination of unnecessary intermediaries of time will bring at present benefit to all. The market situation allows at the same time even to reduce the price for the end user. But it needs to be done as fast as possible", - the head summarized the NAC. The day before in Naftogaz called gas price since May. Gas cost for household consumers since May 1 will be about 9.7-9.8 thousand hryvnias for one thousand cubic meters. Let's remind, since November 1, 2018 the Cabinet of Ministers raised gas prices for the population by 23.5% in compliance with earlier reached agreements with the IMF. However in March it became known that Naftogaz suggested household consumers to buy since April 1 gas at the price 2% lower established by the Cabinet of Ministers – on 8.38 hryvnias for cubic meter. At the same time, for prompotrebitel Naftogaz will reduce the prices since April by 19% at once. News from the Correspondent.netv of Telegram. Subscribe for our https://t.me/korrespondentnet channel
