Naftogaz-Ukraine is ready to set counters for the consumers if they sign contracts, as Andriy Kobolev, the Chairman of the Board of the company, said during the briefing.

According to Kobolev, the Government offers Naftogaz to install counters for the consumers who do not have them. According to Naftogaz, there are 3 million of such citizens. Kobolev stated that they have to sign contracts with the consumers any time soon.

“We support this initiative, but we need contracts with the consumers, we need a contract with a person who wants to install a counter… Our gas supply company can do that, and we should do that as soon as possible,” Kobolev said.

A consumer has to provide a note that he/she does not have any debts.

The next condition is a financial plan confirmed by the Cabinet of Ministers. The plan should provide for means and sources of the funding.

“As soon as the means and their sources are provided in our financial plan, we will be able do this (set counter, - ed.) for those consumers who are or who will become Naftogaz clients through our gas supply company,” he added.

Consumers themselves can be the sources of the means. Naftogaz representatives have checked and chosen the counters which they can install. According to Kobolev, one counter costs around $43 – 46. If Naftogaz purchases counters for the consumers, their price will fall down by 20-30%.
