For natural gas users with an annual consumption of up to 263 450 kWh (25 000 m³) tariffs are changed twice a year — on the 1ˢᵗ of January and the 1ˢᵗ of July.

From July 1 2021, new natural gas and distribution tariffs will come into effect. 

Total amount of payment for natural gas depends on the amount of natural gas consumed as well as the connection capacity, and consists of several components.

How total amount of payment for natural gas are determined?

The price of natural gas depends on the international market, as it is linked to the European exchange indices, and the methodology for calculating it for additional household customers is determined by the PUC (Public Utilities Commission of Latvia).

The price on the Exchange is influenced by: weather conditions, availability of natural gas in storage reservoirs, load and working order of supply pipelines, producer's ability to supply the required volume, costs of supplying natural gas, geopolitics, supply and demand, etc.

Natural gas price encompasses not only the price of the natural gas itself as a commodity, but also trading, storage and transmission capacity services.
