Naftogaz published reports on gas consumption by region: industrial consumers exceeded the limit by 25% (INFOGRAPHIC)
According to Naftogaz Ukrainy, from December 1 to December 20, industrial consumers, budgetary institutions, and fuel cells consumed 1919.8 million cubic meters of gas in total.
Since the beginning of December, industrial consumers, budgetary organizations and fuel cells have exceeded the gas consumption limit by 25%. This was reported in the message of NAK Naftogaz of Ukraine.
According to the company, for the period from December 1 to December 20, industrial consumers, budgetary institutions and fuel cells consumed 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 by 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 to publish regular reports on gas consumption in Ukraine. They will appear every 10 days - on the third day after the end of the next decade, the press service of the company said.
On July 9, 2014, the Cabinet of Ministers established for each region a gas consumption limit for industry, budget consumers, and heat and communal energy. Naftogaz decided to report on how the regions fulfill 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 all industry is under the control of the separatists.
The most undisciplined - Cherkasy, Ternopil and Rivne regions.
Recall that the Cabinet of Ministers, by its Decree No. 296, set target indicators for three categories of consumers: industrial consumers, budgetary institutions and organizations, as well as heat-generating and heat-supplying organizations (TCE). The limits were set at 70-90% of the actual consumption for the corresponding month of last year, depending on the category. Accordingly, the planned consumption volumes were determined for each administrative-territorial unit (the region and the city of Kiev).
Responsibility for the distribution of established limits between individual enterprises and organizations within each category in each region lies with the heads of regional and Kiev city state administrations.
The volume of natural gas consumption by the population is not regulated by this resolution.
