Eni has announced that it has signed a framework agreement with Snam for the development of methane gas stations in Italy.

The company claims that this is part of a wider set of initiatives to promote sustainable mobility. The partnership aims to develop new CNG and LNG plants within Eni’s national network of stations, favouring the supply of low-emission alternative fuels, such as natural gas.

The framework agreement is part of Snam’s initiatives to promote sustainable mobility, with an investment of €150 million by 2020 to roll-out up to 300 new CNG services stations to help support the development and balanced distribution of natural gas fuelling stations in different regions across Italy.

Through the initiative, Eni also intends to strengthen its offer for sustainable mobility. Currently, approximately 1000 of the company’s stations provide LPG and methane, including two LNG and 180 CNG. The remaining 3500 deliver Eni Diesel+.

Eni claims that the framework agreement and subsequent contracts for the implementation stage will provide an additional boost to the natural gas industry from the transport sector.
