Нафтогаз опубликовал отчеты о потреблении газа по регионам

According to Naftogaz Ukrainy, from December 1 to December 20, industrial consumers, public institutions and TKE consumed a total of 1919.8 million cubic meters of gas.

Since the beginning of December, industrial consumers, budget organizations and TKE have exceeded the gas consumption limit by 25%. This is stated in the message NAK Naftogaz Ukraine.

According to the company, for the period from December 1 to December 20, industrial consumers, public institutions and TKE consumed a total of 1919.8 million cubic meters of gas, which is 25% more than the limit set by the government.

The population used an additional 1,499.5 million cubic meters, which is 17% lower than the level of consumption in this category for the same period last year. The total consumption of these categories for the first and second decade of December amounted to 3419.3 million cubic meters of gas.

Naftogaz Ukrainy began publishing regular reports on gas consumption in Ukraine. They will appear once every 10 days - on the third day after the end of the next decade, the press service of the company reported.

On July 9, 2014, the Cabinet of Ministers established for each region a limit on gas consumption for industry, budget consumers and heat utilities. Naftogaz decided to report on how the regions perform it. Judging by the first two decades, almost all regions do not fit into the established restrictions. The only exceptions are Transcarpathia, as well as the Luhansk region, where almost the entire industry is under the control of the separatists.

The most undisciplined are Cherkasy, Ternopil and Rivne regions.

Recall, the Cabinet of Ministers decree No. 296 set targets for three categories of consumers: industrial consumers, budget institutions and organizations, as well as heat generating and heat supply organizations (TKE). Limits were set at 70-90% of the actual consumption volume for the corresponding month of the last year, depending on the category. Accordingly, the planned consumption volumes for each administrative-territorial unit (oblast and Kyiv) were determined.

Responsibility for the distribution of established limits between individual enterprises and organizations within each category in each region is assigned to the heads of regional and Kyiv city state administrations.

The volume of natural gas consumption by the population is not regulated by this decree.
