Law no. 123/2012 sets the legal framework to converge the domestic gas price to the import gas price. Government Decision no. 22/2013 provides for a calendar of domestic gas price increase with respect to the regulated market.
Additionally, ANRE Order no. 24/2013 sets rules and domestic gas allocation methods for the priority covering of the demand on the regulated market, and the volumes required for the minimum inventory as applicable for the regulated segment.
