Matera, 22 January 2019 - Today, the Municipality of Matera and Italgas signed an agreement for Italgas Reti to grant free loan to Italgas Reti the natural gas distribution network serving Borgo Picciano A.
The infrastructure has an overall development of more than one kilometer of road pipelines, for about fifty potential families served and will be fed through the interconnection with the network of the Industrial Development Area "La Martella".
The agreement is part of the activities aimed at optimising the methane distribution service in the municipal area, of which Italgas is the concessionaire, and will allow the network section to be fed without further land consumption.
The extension of the Borgo Picciano A network to Italgas will make it possible to guarantee continuity of service in an increasingly efficient manner, according to criteria of economy, safety and sustainability. In fact, the use of natural gas produces absolutely negligible emissions into the atmosphere which, for the same amount of energy produced, are lower than those emitted by other fossil fuels.
