Increase in the volume of Algerian gas delivered to Italy

Algeria maintains very good relations with Italy, which promotes trade, especially in the field of energy. During the last meetings between the President of the Republic, Abdelmadjid Tebboune, the Italian President, Sergio Marratella and the President of the Council of Ministers of Italy, Mario Draghi, the latter sealed the energy partnership between the two countries.

Algeria, which supplies Italy with gas, intends to increase its deliveries to more than 25 billion m3 by the end of the current year, indicates a press release issued by the Ministry of Energy and des Mines, this Wednesday, September 21.

In the same vein, according to the Bloomberg site, natural gas exports from Algeria to Italy will amount to 25.2 billion cubic meters this year, of which 21.6 billion cubic meters are marketed within the framework of contractual obligations and 3.6 billion cubic meters in the spot market.

In addition, the agency also indicated that Sonatrach reassures its Italian partners on its ability to supply the quantities contracted over the duration of the contract. The Director General indicated that since the beginning of this year, gas exports to Italy amounted to 17.8 billion cubic meters, an increase of 17% compared to the contractual obligations agreed.

Algeria confirms its leading position with Italy as a gas supplier

Thus, with 17.8 billion m3 of gas delivered to date, Algeria which “honors its commitments with Italy” thus consolidates its position as Italy’s leading gas supplier, which “will still receive 10 billion cubic meters of additional gas” in the coming months, specifies this time the Ministry of Energy and Mines.

To conclude, the ministry indicates that it will “further strengthen its position as Italy’s leading gas supplier, as decided by the two presidents” in view of the increases in gas production and the latest discoveries of the Sonatrach group. .
