Stefano Venier, Snam CEO, remarked: "Snam's first half results confirm the soundness of our core business, the positive operating performance and the growth in the contribution of new businesses and associates.

In the new geopolitical and energy environment, Snam is playing an increasingly central role in the security and diversification of energy supplies in Italy as well as Europe.

In recent months, we have supported Italy's energy strategy by helping fill storage facilities with the purchase of approximately 2 billion cubic metres of gas and acquiring two new floating storage and regasification units. We are also strongly committed to enabling the energy transition, as demonstrated with our support for the listing of De Nora, the largest European IPO in the second quarter, and new initiatives in biomethane, energy efficiency and carbon dioxide capture and storage".
