Chairman of Moldovagaz JSC Management Board Vadim Ceban put forward several proposals that, in his opinion, will help to recover from the current gas crisis quickly and without consequences.
In particular, he recommended that the government consider the possibility of increasing budget compensation to domestic consumers, considering the difference between the price of natural gas included in the tariff and the purchase price; return (reimburse) VAT to Moldovagaz JSC to avoid the growth of tariff deviations in the amount of at least $ 22 million; to connect the credit facilities of the main industrial consumers of natural gas (fuel and energy companies) through international financial institutions to pay for current gas consumption, reports noi.md
Vadim Ceban also noted that the Board of Moldovagaz JSC will appeal for support to all shareholders, including Gazprom PJSC, with a request to consider the possibility of deferring payment or providing short-term loans in the amount of financial deviations. In addition, the company will continue to optimize costs.
“It should be added that in the long term, the industry needs to be brought to the free market, where the price for domestic consumers and producers differs significantly,” Vadim Ceban said.
