Effective 1 October 2020, the network fees approved by Competition Authority decision no. 7-3/2020-024 of 16 June 2020 will be in force.

The purpose of the change in the network fees is to change the baseline prices for standard capacity products of a specific capacity for a period other than a year, pursuant to the change in the number of days in a year (the gas years 2020/2021, 2021/2022 and 2022/2023 are 365 days long while the length of 2020 used as a basis for calculating network service prices is 366 days long). There are no changes to other data used as a basis for determining the price of network service.

On 1 July 2018, the standardized terms and conditions for domestic gas transmission service at Elering AS (approved by Competition Authority decision no. 7-10/2018-0013 of 13 April 2018) and the standardized terms and conditions for cross-border gas transmission service at Elering AS (approved by Competition Authority decision no. 7-10/2018-015 of 17 May 2018) entered into force.

Starting from 01.01.2020, the "Standard Terms and Conditions for the National Gas Transmission Service for Elering AS", approved by the Competition Authority's decision No 7-10/2019-006 of 06.09.2019 and the "Common Regulations for the Use of Natural Gas Transmission System",  approved by the Competition Authority's decision No 7-10/2019-007 of 30.09.2019, entered into force.

With decision 23.04.2020 nr 7 10/2020 001 Competition Authority approved amendments in Elering AS and AS "Conexus Baltic Grid" Common Regulations for the use of Natural Gas Transmission System, which are applciable from 01.06.2020.

 

Since 1. January 2008 natural gas  amongst other fuels in Estonia is taxed with an excise according to Alcohol, Tobacco, Fuel and Electricity Excise Duty Act. The obligation of payment and declaration of excise according to the law lies with the network service provider.

In Estonia since 1.1.2016 the excise applied to natural gas is 0,03377 €/m3 plus value added tax.

Natural gas is taxed with an excise when natural gas is used as fuel, meaning that heat is produced from natural gas (the reason for production is not relevant – heating of buildings, for technological processes etc)

The user of natural gas can apply for excise waiver permission, in the case the user is:

  • Natural gas network operator, who uses natural gas in order to keep the natural gas network in operation;
  • User, who has been included in the business register and uses natural gas in activities, such as
    • Mineralogical processes
    • For production of electricity
    • For other purposes than fuel
