The Ukrainian National Electricity Regulatory Commission denies information on the intension to increase gas tariffs for population in 2007, Cabinet press office reported.

At the present time a working group continues to develop the matter of establishing differential rates for gas for the population depending on the consumption scopes, starting with 339 UAH (1 USD - 5.05 UAH) for 1,000 cubic meters.

Apart from that, taking into account increase of purchase price for the imported gas starting with January 1, 2007, up to 130 USD for 1,000 cubic meters, the working group considers the possibility to keep the gas prices for municipal heat-and-power engineering enterprises at the current level.

The wholesale price for gas for complex consumers remains at the same level - 414 UAH for 1,000 cubic meters.

The price for natural gas for enterprises of municipal heat-and-power engineering, heat power plants, electric power plants and boilers is increased from 383.4 UAH up to 686 UAH for 1,000 cubic meters since July 1- for VAT non-payers. At that for VAT-payers enterprises the price for gas is increased almost by 78% - from 329.1 UAH up to 585.6 UAH for 1,000 cubic meters.

According to calculations of the Ukrainian National Electricity Regulatory Commission, it is required to make level of price for gas for municipal heat-and-power engineering enterprises to 713.2 UAH for 1,000 cubic meters. According to the information of "NaftoGaz of Ukraine", economically substantiated level of prices is - 740.1 UAH for 1,000 cubic meters of gas.
