Dateline 2018-06-13, The Star:
Businesses and high-end condominiums which receive natural gas through the pipe system will have to pay more under a scheduled increase with effect from July 1.
Gas Malaysia said on Wednesday these customers will have to pay higher tariffs after it imposes the surcharge of 77 sen, raising the tariff to RM23.80 per one million British Thermal Units (BTU).
The incentive based regulation (IBR) framework sets the base tariff for a regulatory period of three years from January 2017.
The company said it had received the go-ahead from the Energy Commission to raise the surcharge under the mechanism for the tariffs following the global increase in gas prices.
The IBR allows changes in the gas costs to be passed through via the Gas Cost Pass Through (GCPT) mechanism every six months.
