On 1 May 2023, the natural gas market is fully open. This means that Latvijas Gāze continues to provide its customers with natural gas at the market price, instead of the methodology approved by the Public Services Regulatory Commission.

As a market product, we offer the UNIVERSAL service, developed in accordance with the new MK regulations no. 78 because it has several advantages.


The UNIVERSAL service has reduced natural gas prices by 37% for cooking and by 24% for heating.
