Was held July 12 at the Ministry of Economic Development conference services for the final approval of a regasification terminal bees nòva energy company in the town of Falconara Marittima.

During the meeting, we acquired the views of relevant government departments, particularly in favor of the City, and understanding with the Marche Region. The project had a positive assessment for the environmental aspects of security.

The plant has a capacity of about 4 billion cubic meters per year and will be implemented through an adjustment of the existing offshore platform, located 16 km from the coast and already operating for the unloading of oil tankers, owned by bees Refinery of Ancona SpA, the Group's Bees. The ships, after the cargo of LNG from liquefaction plants abroad or by transfer from transport ships off, can perform safely re-gasification at the platform.

The gas will be piped to the ground through a new subsea pipeline of 16 km and from there to a station for measuring and adjusting the existing network connection Houses in the locality of the national transport Latins. The creation of Italy in the fourth LNG terminal will allow our country to increase the security of gas supplies through a more effective diversification of energy sources and supply routes. It will also help increase the supply of gas on the Italian market and therefore competition between operators, setting the stage for a containment of gas prices for households and businesses.
