PNGRB increases unified tariff for national gas grid by 10 per cent

The PNGRB has increased the unified tariff for the national gas grid system by 10 per cent from Rs 73.9 mBtu to Rs 81.1 mBtu from July 1, 2023. To improve gas consumption, the PNGRB had introduced a unified tariff for natural gas pipelines from April 1, 2023, allowing customers to pay a single tariff whereas pipeline operators receive differentiated tariffs on the basis of distance. For this, three tariff zones were created, with the first zone being located 300 km from the gas source with a tariff of Rs 40 mBtu, second zone between 300 and 1,200 km with Rs 79 tariff and the third zone beyond 1,200 km with Rs 114.50 tariff.
