Heating costs are forecast to increase by 15-40% based on the new conditions for gas supply from Naftogaz Trading.
Naftogaz Trading presented new gas purchase contracts for Teplokommunenergo (TKE) enterprises. There are advance payments, quotas for the volume of use and write-off of funds from the accounts of companies in the event of a debt.
If the payment deadline specified in the contract is violated, a fine of 10% of the delivery volume per month will be applied to the company.
Representatives of the Ukrteplokommunenergo association are confident that these quotas are 10-15% lower than the optimal ones. Under such conditions, it is predicted that the final heating tariffs will increase by 15-40% by the beginning of the 2021-2022 heating season in Ukraine (tariffs in different cities may differ).
At the same time, the approximate contract for the supply of natural gas to produce heat, which was concluded between the enterprises of TKE and Naftogaz Trading LLC on May 29, implies gas supply cost at the level of 7583.89 UAH including VAT and transportation.
