In what case is the network operator entitled to cease the natural gas supply without notice on disconnection of the domestic consumer's use installation?

The domestic consumer's use installation can be disconnected from the natural gas distribution network in case of:

  • non-payment of natural gas consumed at the consumption place within 10 calendar days from the payment deadline of the invoice submitted to the domestic consumer;
  • submission of prescription by the Main State Inspectorate for Technical Supervision of Dangerous Industrial Objects;
  • breach of technical safety and rules on the use of natural gas by the domestic consumer.

The cease of natural gas supply is performed at the blow-off valve, the meter valve or the fire valve. If the natural gas supply is ceased, the supplier prepares the cessation document in 2 copies, stating the reason and the actions to be taken by the domestic consumer to remove the violations.
