The Regulatory Office for Network Industries has initiated the pricing procedure on its own initiative. The regulator refused to reveal how much gas prices for Slovak households and small businesses will decline.
Natural gas prices in Slovakia will decline soon at least to customers whose prices are regulated by the Regulatory Office for Network Industries (URSO) – households and small businesses. The regulator has
started the pricing procedure on its own initiative. Deputy Chairman of URSO, Miroslav Celinsky, informed that Office had decided to intervene into prices after assessing the situation on the international natural gas markets, because gas prices for Slovak customers insufficiently respond to changing conditions on the markets. „This can disturb the balance and lead to disproportionate profit of suppliers at the expense of gas customers,“ said Celinsky.
