In the Gas & Power Division, Eni intends to recover profitability leveraging on

  • a competitive and flexible cost position thanks to contract renegotiation;
  • an expansion in gas sales in Italy through its sales force, diversified offer of innovative products and best-in-class services, mainly to the retail segment;
  • a selective development in activities outside Italy, focusing on more profitable segments and increasing LNG sales in profitable markets outside Europe.


In the 2013-2016 period Eni intends to preserve its market share in Italy and abroad taking account of the expected increase in supply and logistics costs implementing efficient marketing initiatives. Management intends to reach a greater integration of trading and commodity price risk management with the supply activities and the non-retail commercial sales of gas and LNG to fully centralize and optimize Eni’s commodity risk exposure in markets characterized by more and more evolved counterparties.
