E.ON Energie Romania’s natural gas deliveries rose, in the first quarter, by 3.4 pc, compared to the same interval of the preceding year, but the low selling price led, in the aforementioned interval, to uncovered costs of over RON 240 M, according to the company, Mediafax reports. Deliveries rose, in the first quarter, to 12 million MWh. The largest portion of deliveries, that is, 10 million MWh, went to households and small-sized enterprises. “In 2009 and 2010, uncovered costs amounted to over RON 400 M. This situation was prolonged into the first quarter of 2011, when we accumulated new costs, of over RON 240 M,” according to figures supplied by the company. Company representatives claim that the situation has to be urgently revised. The Government committed, before the IMF and the European Commission, to draft, by September, a calendar to oust regulated prices for gas and electrical power, between 2013 and 2015.
