RJ: Channeled gas tariff will be reduced in May

From May 1, the piped natural gas supplied by Ceg and Ceg Rio, of the Naturgy group, will suffer a price reduction. According to Naturgy, the decision was made due to the reduction in the cost of purchasing the product, which is provided by Petrobras, and also includes CNG (Vehicular Natural Gas).

Also according to Naturgy, the cut of the supply of natural gas channeled by default will not be done. The decision is valid for the entire area served by the company and will benefit more than one million customers. The guidelines are from the Government of Rio de Janeiro. Only cuts will be made in cases of emergency and safety measures, such as exhausts. The measure applies to households, small businesses, individual microentrepreneurs and medical-hospital services.

Finally, the company pointed out that, in case of customer difficulties to pay the invoice, the option of installment of the gas bill will be offered.
