Chairman of Libya’s NOC Sanalla meets with Eni’s CEO Claudio Descalzi
Fayez al-Sarraj, Head of the Presidential Council of the Libyan Government of National Accord, met in Tripoli with Eni’s CEO Claudio Descalzi today to discuss the general situation of Libya, with a particular focus on introduction of renewable energy in Libya and Eni’s activities in the country.
The meeting was also attended by the Chairman of the National Oil Corporation (NOC), Mustafa Sanalla.
Claudio Descalzi assured Sarraj the full commitment of the company to its operational activities and projects in the country and reiterated Eni’s commitment in the social area, particularly in reference to the initiatives undertaken in the power generation sector.
Following the Memorandum of Understanding signed last year with GECOL and NOC, Eni has contributed greatly for the improvement of the power sector, supplying much needed spare parts and technical assistance that allowed the recovery of 425 MW of power output in the Tripoli area.
Moreover, Eni will continue its commitment in support of the population of Libya to this very sensitive issue by making available its knowhow and expertise for the development of solar plants and wind farms.
The introduction for the first time of renewable energy in Libya will give an answer to the request of more electrical power for the population without increasing local hydrocarbon consumption. The development of renewable energies in the countries where Eni operates represents a fundamental element in the process of energy transition towards a low-carbon scenario.
The company is already the main supplier of gas to the local market, which is entirely used to feed the country’s power plants for a generation capacity exceeding 3 GW.
