Economic Regulation

Economic Regulation

The need for economic regulation in natural gas is driven by the fact that service providers have monopolistic power and if they are left unregulated they may abuse their powers leading to inefficient provision of services.

EWURA carries out economic regulation by establishing rate methodology and reviewing rates and charges after submission by an applicant or when EWURA sees a necessity to do so. To enable an applicant to submit tariff application for review and approval, the Authority has prepared  Tariff Application Guidelines, 2009.
