While considering citizens’ appeal, the Federal Antimonopoly Service identified signs of abuse of dominating position and violations of Paragraph 8, Part 1, Art. 10 of the law “On the protection of competition” as a result of rendering services under contracts specifying different conditions of metering the amount of gas consumed.
“It was established that the conditions specified on the official website of the public gas supplier for ensuring domestic needs of citizens do not comply with the applicable law. In particular, under the contract with LLC “Gazprom mezhregiongaz ‘Penza,’” in case of failure to provide metered gas values or in case of absence of gas flow meter, the amount of gas is metered on the basis of consumption standards. But gas supply regulations define a different procedure for metering the amount of gas consumed – it is based on the amount of average monthly gas consumption,” the official website of the Penza region office of FAS of Russia says.
It is also added that a number of agreements concluded during the period from 2011 to 2014 with citizens do not satisfy the rules as well.
