Eni CEO: Protestors Pushing for Halt to Libya Gas Exports to Italy
MILAN, Nov 6 (Reuters) – Protestors at the Mellitah terminal in Libya are pressuring Italian oil and gas group Eni to halt gas exports to Italy, the Chief Executive of Eni told Italian radio on Wednesday.
"What's worrying however is that in these very hours the Mellitah terminal... is under attack by demonstrators who are pushing us to completely halt exports to Italy," Paolo Scaroni told the radio.
Eni is the biggest foreign oil and gas operator in Libya.
Gas from the Mellitah terminal is transported from Libya to the island of Sicily.
