Three contracts assigned for development of Malta-Sicily gas pipeline

The Energy and Water Management Ministry, with the assistance of the Energy and Water Agency, has assigned three contracts for the development of a gas pipeline between Malta and Gela in Sicily. The project has been called the Melita TransGas Pipeline.

Energy Minister, Joe Mizzi, announced the establishment of a public company, with the same name of the project it is responsible for. During a press conference at Delimara, where the pipeline outlet will emerge in Malta, he  said the project is in the detailed study phase and the technical design that will eventually lead to the project’s implementation. He said that the project should be completed by 2024 with the gas pipeline replacing the temporary gas tanker.

The studies, half of which are being funded by the European Union funds, will be commencing in the coming weeks.

The studies will be presented for the issuing of permits by Gela and Maltese authorities for the project.
