Gov't to decide on lower gas price, noise maps

The Croatian government, which will convene on Wednesday, is expected to make decisions that will lead to a cut in natural gas prices for households between 15-20%.

Thus, the cabinet of the Prime Minister Tihomir Oreskovic is expected to ensure that the oil and gas supplier INA will sell gas supplies, produced in Croatia at the price of HRK 0.1369 per kWh, which is 20.2% lower than the current price of natural gas sold by INA to the electricity provider HEP. Furthermore, HEP will provide other supplier of gas for households at a lower price, which will lead to lower gas prices for households.

The lower price tariffs will be in place from 1 April 2016 to 31 March 2017, and the HERA energy regulator will precisely define price tariffs.

Amendments to the Noise Protection Act, which envisage the elaboration of strategic noise maps, are also on the government's agenda.
