New Studies on Proposed Malta-Sicily Gas Pipeline Will Lead To Eventual Construction

Three new gas pipeline studies which the EU hopes will be a prelude to eventual construction are expected to start soon. The 160-km gas pipeline would be built between Malta and Gela in Sicily, cost around €350 million with a projected completion by 2024. The studies being undertaken are looking into the route, the seabed, the effects on the environment as well as the design of the infrastructure needed for the project. The studies are expected to be completed by the end of the 2019 summer.

Maltese Energy Minister Joe Mizzi said that once commissioned, the pipeline will substitute the temporary LNG tanker in Delimara. He also said that a public entity has been established in order to lead the implementation and operation of the project.
