Also we have already got several requests of other companies’ for granting the status of the Natural Gas Exchange Participant, according to them in the the near future the agreements will be signed. At the moment the meetings with the biggest natural gas market participants have been held. Other potential participants of the exchange are informed about the possibility and the conditions of participating in the exchange as well. We think that the first deals will be fulfilled soon.
As it is known, one of the factors influencing consumption of natural gas the most, is the temperature of air. At the moment it is not so stable, that is why it is not so easy to foresee the demand of gas for the gas consumers. We think that this new tool for trading in natural gas will help to solve this situation and risk.” – said CEO of UAB GET Baltic Haroldas Nausėda.
