San Donato Milanese, 27 June 2008 - The Board of Directors of Snam Rete Gas has decided to establish an Independent Transmission Operator. This follows the instructions of Resolution n. 11/07 and n. 253/07 of the Authority for Electricity and Gas regarding functional separation of the activity of transportation of gas from other gas activities and the formal indication from Eni S.p.A. with positive opinion of the Board of Statutory Auditors and in accordance with the article 2497 ter of the civil code. The Chief Executive Officer of Snam Rete Gas S.p.A. would be the sole member of the Independent Transmission Operator.

With the aim of complying with the regulations mentioned, the Board of Snam Rete Gas S.p.A. has called for an extraordinary meeting of its shareholders on the 31 July, 1 August and 2 August 2008 (first, second and third call, respectively) to bring about certain changes in the Company By-Laws.  The primary changes concern:

  • (art.2) inclusion in the Company purpose of the aim to promote competition, efficiency and appropriate levels of quality of services as set out in art. 2 paragraph 2.1 of the Resolution n.11/07 of the Authority for Electricity and Gas.
  • (art. 19) provision that the Board of Directors, in accordance with art. 2381 of the civil code, can establish committees and decide the powers and membership numbers of committees.
