UK energy bills set to rise if Russian gas supplies are disrupted

UK energy bills could rise significantly this winter if Russian gas supplies get disrupted, according to remarks attributed to an Ofgem official. “If we were to experience disruption over the winter, we would expect the impact on the security of supply to the UK to be one in terms of prices rather than physical disruption,” the official is quoted as saying, adding that any price rises would depend “on the size, nature and duration of any disruption.” RIA Novosti
