On the average price estimated under the Unified Gas Supply System for the gas supplied to consumers in the Russian Federation (except the population) (Pv)

Under Clause 3 of the Rules for determining the average price, estimated under the Unified gas supply system, for flammable natural gas supplied to consumers in the Russian Federation (except the population), the estimated prices for selling gas outside the CIS member-states and the costs of gas transportation and storage outside the member-states of the Customs Union when selling gas outside the CIS member-states (further on referred to as the Rules), approved by No.107 Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation of 10.02.2015, the unified estimated price under the gas supply system for gas supplied to consumers in the Russian Federation (except the population) (P) is determined under the following  formula: Pv= PwholeNN/0.9955

where PwholeNN – is the ceiling minimal level of wholesale prices for gas used to determined the wholesale prices for consumers in the Nizhny Novgorod region, under Clauses 15(1) and 15(2) of the Main provisions for establishing and state regulation of gas prices, tariffs for the gas transportation services and the fee for technological connection of gas equipment in the Russian Federation, approved by No. 1021 Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation of 29 December 2000, for the tax period.

Until next regular review of regulated wholesale gas prices in the Russian Federation, the PwholeNN value is determined on the basis of No. 218-e/3 Order of the Federal Tariff Service of 08.06.2015 (column 1 of the Appendix to the Order) reaching  4034 Rub per 1000 of gas.

In view of the above, Pv reached 4052 RUB per 1000 m³ of gas (4034/0.9955, rounded under Clause 2 of the Rules) and applies from 1 July 2015 until a review of the wholesale gas prices in the Russian Federation.

On average price, estimated under the integrated gas supply system, for gas (Prd), ensuring equal earning capacity of gas supplies for consumers in the Russian Federation and consumers outside the CIS member-states, RUB per 1000 m³, and on a decreasing coefficient (Cdecr), ensuring that changes in the increase of gas prices match the average parameters of the annual changes of the prices for gas supplied to consumers in the Russian Federation (except the population)

Prd is 6579.11533862543 per 1000 m³, applied from 1 July 2015 until a review of the wholesale gas prices in the Russian Federation.

Cdecr is 0.6160 and applied since 1 July 2015 until a review of the wholesale gas prices in the Russian Federation.

Prd and Cdecr values are published in line with No. 973 Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation of 23.09.2014.
