Eni: North Africa Will Be Italy’s Key Gas Supplier For Years To Come
According to Guido Brusco, chief operating officer for natural resources at Eni, Italy’s primary gas suppliers for the next few years will be Algeria, Egypt, and Libya.
« Algeria, Egypt, and Libya will be the main gas suppliers to Italy over the next few years, » said Brusko, adding that the energy company will invest extensively in Africa for both exploration and new low-carbon projects.
According to him, Eni is the continent’s top gas producer. He also noted that more than 90% of the fuel the company generated in the continent last year was sold locally.
Depending on demand, gas exports from Algeria to Italy are anticipated to be in the range of 15 billion cubic meters, up from 12 billion last year, Brusco noted.
