Italy Says Shale Gas Production Never Taken Into Consideration


MILAN, Nov 5 (Reuters) - The production of shale gas in Italy has never been taken into consideration, the Italian industry ministry said on Tuesday, clarifying earlier comments from minister Flavio Zanonato.

In its statement, the ministry said Zanonato had replied to journalists in Brussels saying it was necessary to relaunch national production of traditional oil and gas.

Zanonato said Italy could merely consider the importing of shale gas, the statement said.
