Italian energy company Eni confirmed on Saturday that the volume of Russian gas it will receive this Saturday will be “zero”, after Gazprom announced that it was “impossible” to transport the material through Austria. “Gazprom” informs that due to the declared impossibility of transporting gas through Austria, it cannot confirm the delivery of the requested gas volumes today. Therefore, today, the flow of Russian gas to Eni through the entry point of Tarvisio will be canceled,” the Italian public company explained in a statement.

The Russian gas company, in turn, blames the Austrian government for the suspension. “Transportation of Russian gas, under the contract concluded with Gazprom Export through the territory of Austria, has been suspended due to the refusal of the Austrian operator to confirm the transport nominations,” Gazprom said in a statement. The Russian gas company specifies that the reason is the “regulatory changes” that happened recently in the Central European country.

“Gazprom” is working on solving the problem together with Italian buyers,” he added.

Italy receives Russian gas from Siberia through a gas pipeline that crosses Ukraine and is connected to “Trans Austria Gas”, controlled by the Snam company. Since the start of Russia’s military campaign in Ukraine, Algeria has replaced Russia as the main gas supplier to the transalpine country, after Mario Draghi’s government launched an energy diversification program to ease its dependence on the Eurasian country.

Before the invasion, Italy was heavily dependent on energy imports, to the point that it purchased 90% of the gas it consumed, with 40% coming from Russian territory.
