Natural gas tariff for non-power sector to go up from July 1


Dateline 2018-06-13, The Sun:

Gas Malaysia Bhd has announced a higher average effective natural gas tariff for the non-power sector in Peninsular Malaysia at RM32.69/MMBtu from July 1 to Dec 31, 2018, 17 sen or 0.5% higher than the RM32.52/MMBtu from Jan 1 to June 30, 2018.

It said in a filing with the stock exchange that the average natural gas base tariff is set at RM31.92/MMBtu for the second half of the year. However, under the gas cost pass through (GCPT) mechanism, a surcharge of 77 sen/MMBtu will apply to all tariff categories due to the higher actual gas costs against the reference gas costs in the base tariff.

The natural gas tariff revision was approved by the government via a letter from the Energy Commission dated June 12.

For Category A (Residential), the effective tariff rate, however, fell 0.5% to RM23.80/MMBtu from RM23.92/MMBtu. For the other categories, the effective tariff rate will range from RM30.50/MMBtu to RM33.32/MMBtu.
