Snam Company Profile
Snam is Europe’s leading gas utility. Founded in 1941 as “Società Nazionale Metanodotti”, it has been building and managing sustainable and technologically advanced infrastructure guaranteeing energy security for over 75 years. Snam operates in Italy and, through subsidiaries, in Albania (AGSCo), Austria (TAG and GCA), France (Teréga), Greece (DESFA) and the United Kingdom (Interconnector UK). It is one of the main shareholders of TAP (Trans Adriatic Pipeline) and is the company most involved in projects for the creation of the Energy Union.
First in Europe by transport network size (about 32,600 km in Italy, more than 41,000 with international subsidiaries) and natural gas storage capacity (16.9 billion cubic meters in Italy, more than 20 billion with international subsidiaries), Snam manages the first liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant built in Italy and is a shareholder of Adriatic LNG, the country’s main terminal and one of the most strategic in the Mediterranean, and – via DESFA – the Greek terminal in Revithoussa, with a total pro rata regasification capacity of around 6 billion cubic metres per year.
Snam’s business model is based on sustainable growth, transparency, nurturing talent, and development of local areas by constantly listening to and exchanging dialogues with local communities, also thanks to the social initiatives of the Snam Foundation. Through the “Snamtec” project, launched under the scope of the 2018-2022 business plan, Snam has given a great boost to investments for energy transition, focused on technology initiatives, innovation and R&D supporting large national and international networks and green economy businesses, like sustainable mobility, renewable gas, hydrogen and energy efficiency.
