Gas Prices on Their Way Down

#4
Sigh... and here in my state the powers that be nullified regulation of the two companies which led to one raising it's rate a full 50% and the other going 25% higher in less than three months. Folks are screaming for action of course but nothing will change with any degree of swiftness.

Some things, like basic utilities, need to be strictly regulated and controlled for the population's sake.

No.
It is a very easy task. First up gas prices in Belgrade to British level and then it would possible to make several 'cuts'.

I heard that Gazprom is very interesting in the British gas market. If it would be allowed to operate in the UK then gas prices will be likely cut even more.
.... and next time Berezovsky shoots his mouth off, Putin expresses his displeasure by cutting off UK's gas supply? No thanks....

It is a business. Whatever mr.Berezovsky says gas flow (and money flow in backward direction) would be uninterruptible. Ther is only one potential cause. In British customers would demand to pay only 1/4 of market price then gas would be sold to others.

Anyway, the UK will consume significant amount of Russian gas soon. Without resellers it would be cheapier.

Why don't I trust this 'good' news? Because it's long long overdue. They are very slow to lower prices, and like sh1t off a shovel in raising them.

Renationalise now. Along with water, lecky and railways. Give us back our family silver.

Being a Scottish Gas customer and paid largely for their GAS during the cold winter months,why is it that they reduced the price of GAS in the Spring,Summer and Autumn then they hype it back up to its highest during the Winter. We don't get a reduction at all, it is jobbies coming from their mooths as usual.Time tae change methinks.

i thought this was common knowledge
http://www.guardian.co.uk/russia/article/0,,1794689,00.html.
it is worth noting that centrica have had a fekin sh!te year due to the explosion of a centrefuge (spelling) on platform 47/3b in the roughfield , this had a hefty effect on all our gas bills and left the company weakend.
however with the pipline from norway just complete we will not be at the mercy of ivan just yet.
A lot of ex soviet states are also very " gas wealthy" , if there are any qualified pipefitters reading this site , get your asses out to the khaziks as there is a lotta of dough to be made!!!

Sergey, any news references or other sources you can provide on this?
There was quite alot of talk and speculation on this 12+ months ago - following on from their squabble with Ukraine.

Did a quick google and came up with a bucketful of links, but these two from last June offer a flavour - for those with genuine interest.

Telegraph
Energy Business Review

PS. If you say you 'heard' something, is it allowed to be called a 'rumour' and thus go without a link? This is of course, ARRSE not ARFSE or ARMSSE
(fact or media service).... :D
