Eni and Snam have signed the first contract implementing the framework agreement signed on May 2017 for the development of natural gas for vehicle stations in Italy, which is part of a set of initiatives promoting sustainable mobility.
The 20-year contract lays out the plan for the construction and maintenance of a first batch of 14 new CNG stations by Snam within Eni’s national refueling network, favoring the supply of low-emission alternative fuels such as natural gas. Snam will receive an amount estimated between 20 and 40 million euro from Eni for its services.
The new agreement is part of Snam’s initiatives for sector operators and aims to promote sustainable mobility. It includes an investment of 150 million euro to roll-out up to 300 new CNG and L-CNG fueling stations which will support the development and more balanced distribution of natural gas stations in different regions across the country. It will also improve the quality of service for users.
Eni seeks to further strengthen its offer for sustainable mobility through this initiative. Approximately 1,000 of Eni’s stations currently supply alternative fuels including natural gas.
