Natural gas fees for households consist of five components – gas price, which is affected by resource price fluctuations on the world market and which is calculated based on the approach provided by the Public Utilities Commission; the fee for transmission services, which is calculated by AS Conexus Baltic Grid and coordinated with SPRK; transmission operator’s services, where tariffs are calculated by Gaso and coordinated with SPRK, as well as excise and VAT, which are governed by the state.
