What will Saipem do on gas in the United Arab Emirates

In the Emirates, Saipem has obtained a 420 million euro gas project. This is good news for Italy, after Di Maio's unhappy choices. The italics of Gagliano

Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) has awarded a project worth approximately 420 million euros to Saipem with the aim of increasing the capacity of the Shah sour gas plant in the capital of the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

This will increase the processing capacity of the Shah gas plant by 13%, taking it from 1.28 to 1.45 billion cubic feet per day, which will allow an overall increase of 145%. We must not forget that the Shah plant, located 200 kilometers south of Abu Dhabi, is the largest and the recovered sulfur is transported by the UAE national railway network to the ADNOC coastal terminal in the city of al-Ruwais. and then exported all over the world for the production of fertilizers.

From the point of view of Saipem's energy policy and of Italy as a whole, there is no doubt that this constitutes excellent news after the diplomatic tension in relations between our country and Abu Dhabi due to the unhappy choices of both Di Maio and the our government .

On the other hand, this cooperation substantially strengthens the one set up by Di Maio himself and from which our country cannot disengage itself – as America cannot – just to please Amnesty International or Human Rights Watch. As we have stressed several times on these pages, it is not these organizations that must dictate the rules of foreign policy. Western democracies – yesterday as today – need autocratic systems and therefore must obtorto adapt to adapt.

On the other hand, did the Protestant Elizabeth I not finance Muslims at a military level to counter the influence of her brother-in-law and the very Catholic Philip II? And did Catholic Venice not have privileged links with the great Muslim dynasties, namely the Ayyoubides, the Mamluks and the Ottomans?
