“The Regulations and fees for services approved are the latest steps before the beginning of trade at the Exchange. All that is left to do is to enter into contracts with market players and start trading. We are going to do this already at the beginning of January of the next year,” said Haroldas Nausėda, CEO of UAB GET Baltic.
To enable market players to try this new instrument of trade in natural gas, UAB GET Baltic applies 100 % discount rate to the initial registration fee and the annual membership fee for 2013.Thus, in 2013, the participants of the Exchange will only pay if they fulfil commissions to buy or to sell natural gas, in this event they should pay for the Exchange services as per tariff: LTL 3.00 per thousand cubic meter of gas.
Trade at the Exchange is an alternative means for trade in natural gas, the exchanges of this type are widely operating in other Member States as well. The Natural Gas Exchange allows natural gas market players to plan their routine activity and the development of their activity and other procedures even more flexibly.
