Snam Rete Gas and ITG
Snam Rete Gas
Since more than seventy years Snam Rete Gas has been designing, building and managing the infrastructure for the transmission of natural gas, ensuring Italy stable supplies through a continuous improvement of the gas system. The pipeline network, which has been realized in respect of the environment and landscapes, extends for more than 32,500 km across most of the country. This integrated network is operated by eight local districts that oversee and control the activities of the 48 maintenance centres and a dispatching centre coordinating the 11 compressor stations.
Snam Rete Gas takes in charge the natural gas at the delivery points which are connected to the import lines from Russia, Northern Europe and North Africa, with regasification plants as well as with production and storage sites throughout Italy. The gas is then transported and made available, based on the request of the shippers, at delivery points connected to local distribution networks, large industrial users and power stations. Access to the transport service is subject to regulation, like also tariffs, which are defined on the basis of clear and transparent criteria established by Italy’s Authority for Electricity and Gas.
Infrastrutture Trasporto Gas
The Infrastrutture Trasporto Gas transportation system consists of the pipeline "Cavarzere - Minerbio" which runs for about 84 km, from Cavarzere (VE) up to the interconnection with Snam Rete Gas near Minerbio (BO). The pipeline allows the interconnection of the offshore regasification terminal located off the coast of Porto Viro (province of Rovigo) with the Minerbio hub, thanks to a 36" pipeline, with a pressure of 75 bar and a transportation capacity of 9.6 billion Smc, corresponding to a maximum daily capacity of 26.4 MSmc/day.
The infrastructure was completed in February 2008, and the commercial transmission of gas, that comes mainly from Qatar, began in September 2009.
