We completed the sale of the shares held in the pipelines importing gas from Northern Europe (TENP and Transitgas) in 2011 in the framework of the commitments undertaken with the European Commission on 29th September 2010 and our ship-or-pay contracts have also remained in force. We also have transportation rights to a European and North African pipeline system for importing and selling natural gas from various production areas, including the Netherlands, in Italy and wider Europe. Eni operates in Benelux in the industrial, wholesalers and thermoelectric segments, in 2020 sales amounted to 3.58 bcm, down by 0.20 bcm, or 5.3% compared to 2019, mainly due to lower volumes marketed to industrial and thermoelectric segments, partly offset by optimization actions.
