Following an infringement procedure, Romania has established and transmitted to the European Commission a timetable for the liberalization of the natural gas market. Thus, starting with 1 July 2020, the prices for the supply of natural gas to domestic customers will no longer be regulated by the National Energy Regulatory Authority (ANRE).
The supply of natural gas will become a competitive regime, based on the contract concluded between the domestic customer and the supplier. The commercial conditions are negotiated between them or established through standard offers. The offers received from suppliers by household customers must be analyzed, and the new contracts must be concluded by 30 June 2020.
