Majella Park

Majella Park

Photos of the Majella area describes the Park, which is protagonist of the third volume of the "Sustainable Paths". The editorial initiative explains the environmental compatibility according to Snam, based on an approach which focuses on listening to local communities and on dialogue with the people who live and work in such places. An attitude noticeable in all the places where Snam has operates.

The case of Majella Park – Minister of the Environment Gian Luca Galletti writes in the introduction of the book   – is emblematic. The gas pipeline that runs across the Park for over 15 km is invisible and its setting up has offered an example of how an intervention can be carried out with care and competence in such a delicate area.

A volume that describes the experience gained by Snam and the Park in constructing Campochiaro-Sulmona natural gas pipeline, part of a network connecting Algerian Desert and Lybian Sahara to the Italian Peninsula. An infrastructure that follows the best sustainability practices.

A relevant topic for Snam, that lays pipelines – following environmental protection criteria – through 33 SCI (Siti di importanza comunitaria - Sites of Community Importance), 18 Regional Parks, 4 National Parks (Foreste Casentinesi, Majella, Appennino Lucano Val d’Agri Lagonegrese, Pollino) leaving the territories crossed unchanged, where not improved.

Promoted in collaboration with Il Sole 24 Ore, the series is a method through which Snam intends to enhance the value of the areas with which relationships of collaboration have been established on the basis of a model of shared value aimed at creating opportunities for both the company and the areas in which it operates with the objective of promoting sustainable development.

The Maiella Park

The Majella Massif and Mount Morrone are the heart of one of nature’s wonders bearing the millenary traces of man’s work. At the centre of the Italian peninsula facing the Adriatic Sea on one side and mountain valleys on the other, the Park protects 74.095 hectares of land between the provinces of Pescara, L’A quila and Chieti including, besides the Majella and Morrone Massifs, also Mounts Porrara, Rotella, Pizzalto and Pizzi-Secine.

The Campochiaro-Sulmona natural gas pipeline

The energy infrastructure is only a short stretch of that colossal network connecting Africa to continental Europe . The piping is concealed, as it runs underground. The first main line was laid in the 1990s; a second line was added in recent years.

The route of has been planned to reduce the environmental impact to a minimum. The affected areas were restored in such a way as to leave the environment healthy, safe and clean. Every detail has been discussed with Majella Park authorities – including the type of seeds to be sown on the displaced soil, the type of plants to be replanted and their distribution, and the composition of the humus.
