Ukraine will be obliged twice to raise the price of gas in spring and in autumn next year, the media write.
It is noted that the market price is calculated on the basis of import parity – the average price of imported gas for a certain period. This component in the structure of gas prices for consumers is the greatest. It includes the projected price of the German gas trading platform (hub NCG), as well as the cost of transporting gas from the NCG to the Western border of Ukraine, through Germany, the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
Earlier it was planned to raise tariffs at a time, but now the price increase is distributed on several stages spread over one year. It is reported that another price increase should occur in the spring of 2019 – then prices will increase by 15% in the fall of 2019.
What will be the step of improvement also depend on the situation on world commodity markets.
