With 17.8 billion cubic meters of gas already delivered in 2022, Italy "will still receive an additional 10 billion cubic meters of gas" in the next months, with the total supply exceeding 25 billion cubic meters by the end of the year, Xinhua news agency reported, citing a statement by the ministry statement.

In 2021, the North African country exported 21.2 billion cubic meters of natural gas to Italy.
