WARSAW, Nov 27 Polish gas monopoly PGNiG
said it wanted to pass on a price cut from a recently
revised deal with Russian supplier Gazprom to business
and residential users.
State-controlled PGNiG said on Tuesday it had asked the
energy regulator for permission to cut the price 10 percent for
individual households from next year and by 3.3 percent for
"We are in touch with (regulator) URE and we think PGNiG's
motion will be accepted," Prime Minister Donald Tusk told a news
Poland uses less than 15 billion cubic metres of gas
annually, most of it from Russia. Earlier this month, PGNiG
settled with Gazprom on a price cut of more than 15 percent
under a long-term contract.
Thanks to that deal, PGNiG said 2012 core earnings would
rise 2.5-3.0 billion zlotys ($791-$950 million), which will be
included in fourth-quarter results.
Individual users are said to represent a third of PGNiG's
sales volume. PKN Orlen, the country's top refiner, and
leading chemicals makers Pulawy and Tarnow
are among its biggest industrial clients.
