Natural gas price will be decreased from October 1 to December 31, 2015 by 14.26 per cent down to 415.20 leva/1,000 cu. m. (without excise duty and VAT), compared to the effective price for the third quarter of 2015, Energy and Water Regulatory Commission (EWRC) Chairman Ivan Ivanov said at a news conference on Wednesday.
Throughout 2015, the natural gas price has been subjected to a phased reduction going down by a total of 31.16 per cent.
Earlier on Wednesday, EWRC took decisions on the prices of natural gas, electricity generated by a high-efficiency mode and of heat energy during the fourth quarter.
The change of the natural gas price results in a change of the heat energy charged by different utility companies across the country.
