IMPORTANT TO KNOW!

  • Tariffs in the table are indicated with excise tax and VAT (21%).
  • The amount to be paid is rounded up to euro cents.
  • The tariffs for households are determined on the basis of a unitary actual gross calorific value - 10.538 kWh/m³.
  • The calorific value is the amount of heat that can be obtained by fully burning one cubic metre of gas.

    The price of natural gas is linked to the oil fuel (with a sulphur content of up to 1%) and diesel (with a sulphur content of up to 0.1%) price/quotation index FOB ARA (Free OnBoard Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Antwerp) on oil exchanges and the euro and the American dollar exchange rate set by the European Central Bank. When there are changes in the fuel oil and diesel quotation (taking into account the actual 9 month average quotation) and exchange rate ratios, the tariffs approved by the Public Utilities Commission (Sabiedrisko pakalpojumu regulēšanas komisija) are applied accordingly.
