Natural gas tariff to go down next year

The base tariff for natural gas will go down 2.74 percent next year to RM26.31 per MMBtu (one million British Thermal units), Gas Malaysia Bhd said.

In 2017, the average base tariff is approved at RM26.71 MMBtu (one million British Thermal Units) for the first half, followed by RM28.05 MMBtu in the second half, and subsequently RM30.90 and RM31.92 MMBtu in the first and second half of 2018, respectively.
In 2019, the approved average base tariff is at RM32.69 MMBtu for the first six months and RM32.74 in the next six months.

“This translates to an average effective tariff of RM26.31 per MMBtu, which is a reduction of 2.74 percent from the previous average tariff,” it said.
It added that the base tariffs for the regulatory period were expected to contribute positively towards the financial position of the company for the next three financial years.- Mkini
