Eni CEO highlights importance of Libyan gas for Italy’s energy security
Paolo Scaroni, Eni’s CEO, has met the new Libyan Prime Minister, Abdullah al Thani in Tripoli.
The key issue discussed in the meeting was the importance of maintaining and increasing Eni’s current production levels in Libya, of fundamental importance for the country given that at present the company, jointly with NOC, operates the majority of overall Libyan hydrocarbon production, ensuring the generation of electricity for local use.
Following the recent evolutions in the international political scene, Eni’s CEO also underlined the growing importance of Libya to Italy’s gas supply security.
Eni has been present in Libya since 1959 and is the largest international oil company operating in the country, with current equity production of about 250 thousand barrels of oil equivalent per day.
