Investments and network development


Snam has envisaged an increase in investments to € 5.7 billion for the 2018-2022 period, up 10% compared to the previous plan’s € 5.2 billion. The increase is due to both investments in new businesses and an increase in investments in maintenance and replacement activities.

In particular, the €5.7 bn investment can be broken down into €4.8 bn of planned investment for the transportation network, €0.7 bn for storage and regasification and €0.2 bn for new businesses linked to the energy transition.



In detail, € 4.8 billion are related to the transport network. The investments concerns development initiatives, including the TAP interconnection, connections in the North-West to service the local market and cross-border flows, the network in Sardinia.
