Natural gas will be more expensive as of the coming winter, due to the oil prices have grown much lately, said the Director for Energy Trade with Romgaz, Vasile Ciolpan.
“Looking at the oil prices today, it’s clear the gas will be more expensive this winter. We use gas from domestic production, gas from the stored facilities plus imported has during the peak months, imports which are operated every year, depending on temperatures and on the demand,” Ciolpan said, according to realitatea.net.
The gas storage programme in underground facilities is running by the graph and in the coming three months the obligation to reach the needed stored quantity will be met, he added.
“Nevertheless, meeting the storage obligations does not mean it will be enough for the peak consumption intervals during the winter, an imported quantity will also be needed,” the Romgaz official said.
