Italian giant Eni has extended their collaboration with the Tunisian government for transporting Algerian natural gas until 2029.

Eni said on Tuesday that the agreement ensured the management and modernization of the trans-Tunisian gas pipeline.

Under the agreement, Eni will operate the pipeline through its subsidiary Trans Tunisian Pipeline Company (TTPC) for the next ten years.

The agreement follows the ones reached with Sonatrach last May for the purchase of gas and transport in the Strait of Sicily and completes the contractual framework that allows Eni to import Algerian gas into Italy.

Built in the early 1980s and strengthened subsequently over several phases, the trans-Tunisian pipeline consists of two lines, 48 inches wide and around 370 kilometers long, from the Algerian-Tunisian border near Oued Saf to the Cap Bon headland, as well as five compression stations.

With a transport capacity of approximately 34 billion cbm per year, it contributes to the diversification of sources and the energy transition in the Italian market.
