Latvi­jas gāze’s sub­sidiary Gase has turned to Public Util­i­ties Com­mis­sion with a pro­posal for a new nat­u­ral gas trans­mis­sion sys­tem ser­vice’s tar­iff project, pro­vid­ing for a re­duc­ing gas trans­mis­sion price by 18-46% for more than 95% gas con­sumers.

At the same time, it is planned to in­tro­duce a fixed fee for per­mit­ted trans­mis­sion out­put re­gard­less of gas con­sump­tion.

«Our pro­posed trans­mis­sion sys­tem’s tar­iff project is a care­fully con­sid­ered step that should be made to adapt to the new gas mar­ket sit­u­a­tion and en­sure com­pli­ance with se­cu­rity stan­dards. Gas in­fra­struc­ture’s se­cu­rity af­fects all con­sumers. This is why it is nec­es­sary to re­store and main­tain the gas trans­mis­sion net­work to re­duce to a min­i­mum the pos­si­bil­ity of risks,» says Gaso board chair­per­son Ilze Pēter­sone-God­mane.
