Italy: natural gas production 2018, by region

In Italy, most of the domestic natural gas production took place offshore. Regarding on-shore figures, in 2018, Basilicata – with roughly 1.6 billion cubic meters - was the region with the highest production. Emilia-Romagna followed far behind, with a production amounting to 198.3 million cubic meters.  

Domestic natural gas production and consumption

The domestic natural gas production decreased from 9.3 billion cubic meters in 2007 to 5.3 billion cubic meters in 2017. Also, the number of natural gas producing wells decreased over time. This is true for both on-shore and offshore wells. On the other hand, the level of consumption of this fuel steadily increased over the past few years.  

Natural gas trade

Italy relies a lot on external suppliers in order to cover the domestic natural gas demand. In 2017, Russia and Algeria were the main natural gas providers with 27,429 and 20,509 million cubic meters supplied, respectively. Moreover, during that year Italy imported 7,012 million cubic meters of natural gas from Qatar and 4,889 million cubic meters of this fuel from Libya.
