Rome, 26 February 2014 – Eni has purchased a 51% share in the company Acam Clienti S.p.A. following the completion of the tender process, as announced by Acam S.p.A. following authorisation from the Italian Competition Authority.
The company, which operates primarily in the province of La Spezia, has approximately 98,000 residential gas customers and around 12,000 electricity customers (small to mid-sized enterprises).

- one of Europe’s best Contact Centres;
- a website offering advanced functions such as the submission of meter readings, direct debiting of bills, consumption forecasts, energy check-ups in the home and much more;
