Gas tariff from August 1, 2022 – how will it change and will there be an increase

The Russian invasion has a devastating impact on all spheres of Ukrainian life. An increase in gas prices for enterprises and, as a result, for the population on the eve of the heating season 2022-2023 would complicate the already difficult situation in the country.

To avoid this, in mid-July, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine “froze” the price of “blue fuel” for thermal energy producers and budgetary institutions.

According to Decree No. 812 in the period from August 1, 2022 to March 31, 2023, Naftogaz Trading will supply 1,000 cubic meters of gas at the following prices:

  • UAH 7,420 (excluding transportation costs) – to producers of heat energy and suppliers of hot water and heating to the population;
  • UAH 16,390 for budgetary institutions;
  • UAH 38,325.50 including VAT per 1,000 cubic meters of gas for other needs.

The fixed price for gas will allow keeping tariffs for heating and hot water for the population at the same level.

Also, according to this resolution, the fixed volumes of natural gas are determined by the Ministry of Development of Communities and Territories on a monthly breakdown for the specified period at a level of 10% less than the total fixed volumes of natural gas, which were provided for by the relevant heat producers under the terms of the contract for the supply of natural gas for 2021-2024 .

Recall that in June the Cabinet of Ministers set a preferential price for gas, but only for hot water suppliers and only for the next two months: from June 1 to July 31. At the same time, government officials urge Ukrainians to save heat in their homes and take measures to insulate their homes.
