YEREVAN, MAY 31, ARMENPRESS: Hayrusgazard natural gas operator
said it had no plans to ask a government-affiliated public services
regulatory commission to allow it to raise prices for gas supplies
this year. Ashot Hovsepian, Hayrusgazard deputy executive manager,
said the company may change its plans only in case of a drastic fall
in gas consumption volumes.

Hayrusgazard says it has presently 270,000 consumers, a 70,000 rise
over the beginning of the year.
