Mozambique coop with Eni important - Mattarella in Maputo

Italy seeking another deal to cut Russia gas reliance

(ANSA) - ROME, JUL 5 - It is important that Mozambique oil and gas companies are set to step up their cooperation with Italian fuels giant Eni, President Sergio Mattarella said on a visit to Maputo Tuesday.
    Italy is seeking to cut its reliance on Russian gas amid the Ukraine war and has already brought it down from 40% to around 25% of total gas imports with deals with Algeria, Egypt, and Libya among other African countries.
    Eni is seeking a similar deal to up collaboration with Mozambique.
    "Collaboration with Eni is important here: it is precious and I hope it can spread to other Italian firms," Mattarella said at Maputo's presidential palace with Mozambique counterpart Filipe Jacinto Nyusi. (ANSA).
