    Italy has reduced the import of Russian gas by more than 2 times

    September 19, 2022 - Turan Information Agency


      Baku/14.09.22//Turan: Italy intends to double the production of its own natural gas by 2023, bringing it to 7-8 bcm per year, the newspaper "la Repubblica" reported.

      Italian Minister of Ecological Transition Roberto Cingolani said in this regard that he would present a legislative document next week that would open up the possibility of increasing production at existing fields.

      "It is necessary to allow the extraction of a small but significant amount of gas, 4-5 bcm, from existing fields in order to increase the autonomy of Italy," he told "Radio 24".

      "La Repubblica" notes that the increase in its own production will allow Italy to cover a total of 5% of the required annual amount of fuel. The main candidates are called the central and southern regions of the Adriatic Sea and the Tunisian (aka Sicilian) Strait.

      The volume of gas consumption in Italy in 2021 amounted to 76 bcm. By September, the share of Russian gas supplies has been reduced from 40% to 18%, and taking into account the savings in consumption and the receipt of new energy resources, Italy expects to become completely independent of gas supplies from the Russian Federation in the second half of 2024. -0-
