What is the real stake of price capping on natural gas production and why consumers and producers will lose, and producers after PSD’s populist discourse
Capping the price of domestic gas production can also mean an invitation to the two American companies that are the concession operators in the deep waters of the Black Sea, or to look for other markets in the region after they cover some of their domestic consumption, or to postpone its investment decision. At 68 lei / Mwh and with high operating costs, the domestic market will not be attractive. The signal from the Government is that these companies seem to be less welcome, especially after Liviu Dragnea has failed, through managing the negotiations on the Offshore Law, to make a hurry to the top of US diplomacy. In this context, the Government seems to have grossly violated the stability clause set out in the normative act, one and a half months after the promulgation of the Offshore Law, after long debates. In the event of a possible arbitration against the Romanian state, the Finance Minister, probably the only one of the three who signed Ordinance 114/2018, together with his colleagues in the legal departments, will have some explanations.
