The international infrastructure system and Snam's role
International growth aims to consolidate the European infrastructure system facilitating the alignment between the consumer and producer interests, promoting a greater liquidity in the South-European gas market also through the development of new routes, and preserving the connection between the United Kingdom and continental Europe.
The Company operates abroad through its subsidiaries in Albania (AGSCo), Austria (TAG, GCA), China (Snam Gas & Energy Services Beijing), France (Teréga), Greece (DESFA) and the United Kingdom (Interconnector UK). It is one of the main shareholders of TAP (Trans Adriatic Pipeline) and the main player involved in planning the creation of the Energy Union.
The leader in Europe through the extensiveness of the natural gas transportation network (over 41,000 km) and storage capacity (more than 20 billion cubic metres), Snam manages the major liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility built in Italy and is a shareholder of Adriatic LNG, the main terminal in the country and one of the most strategic in the Mediterranean which, together with its investment in DESFA, through the Revithoussa facility, gives a total pro rata regasification capacity of around 7 billion cubic metres per year.
