A big problem since, for the government of Mario Draghithe pact with the North African country served to solve, at least partially, the lack of natural gas coming from Russia.

“Sonatrach (the state oil company of the North African country) struggles to find the additional volumes of natural gas promised by Algeria to Italy and the agreement may not be implemented on schedule ”, writes the Algerian website Algérie Part. “On July 18, 2022, Mario Draghi on a visit to Algiers he signed – the Algerian media recalls – a new gas supply contract to reduce the strong energy dependence of your country on Russia “but” according to our investigations, a new internal audit carried out by the Directorate General of Sonatrach showed that the National Algerian Hydrocarbon Company it does not have the ability to maintain the commitment made in the new agreement with Italy ”. What would be the effects of this new audit? “In the space of a week, 3 crisis meetings were organized at Sonatrach’s general management to discuss urgent solutions that would allow the new gas commitments concluded between Algeria and Italy to be realized”, he adds. Algerie Part.

Eni, however, denies it. And he issues a note to say that “there is no difficulty on the Algerian side in the present and future availability of the agreed additional volumes of gas, which, moreover, are already arriving in Italy”. The six-legged dog company claims that “in the last week from Algeria through the Transmed they arrived in Italy on average 70 million cubic meters per daywhich represent about 36% of total supplies and are more than three times the flow that came from Russia during the same period”. According to Eni’s note, “these levels of flows from Algeria during the month of September have never been recorded in recent years”.
