15 EU member countries announced that they wanted a ceiling price for natural gas

According to the news in the international press, the energy ministers of France, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia signed a joint agreement with EU Commission Energy Member Kadri Simson. sent a letter.

The letter commended the Commission's efforts so far and the measures it has prepared to address the energy crisis.

"We have not yet resolved the most serious issue, the wholesale price of natural gas." In the letter, which includes the statement, it was noted that a ceiling price should be applied to all wholesale natural gas transactions in Europe.

In the letter, it was stated that limiting gas prices is important to protect households and businesses against inflation, and that this ceiling price can be designed to ensure supply security.

In the letter reminding that the ministers of the member states will hold an extraordinary meeting in Brussels on September 30 to discuss the measures to be taken against the energy crisis, the EU Commission was asked to put forward a plan including the gas issue before the meeting.

Countries such as Germany, the Netherlands and Denmark do not favor the idea of ​​capping natural gas prices at this stage.

These countries, which are of the opinion that imposing a ceiling price on gas will put the energy supply security at risk, think that the application may harm the natural gas supply, especially in the winter months.

The contingency plan announced by the EU Commission two weeks ago included limiting the income of low-cost electricity producers, receiving contributions from fossil fuel companies, reducing electricity demand and providing liquidity to energy companies. It was envisaged to support the public and businesses with a resource of 140 billion Euros to be provided from here.

The EU Commission did not include a ceiling price on imported natural gas in the plan. The Commission is expected to announce new measures to address the energy crisis this week.​
