The project components fall under Annex II of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Directive (2011/92/EU), requiring regional competent authorities to determine the need for an EIA. An EIA was conducted for the Larino-Chieti pipeline and the environmental permit has been issued by the competent authorities. An EIA screening was also conducted for the San Marco-Recanati pipeline that concluded that no EIA was required for this specific component.
The investment is subject to the public procurement provisions defined in Directives 2014/24/EU and 2014/25/EU for entities operating in the water, energy, transport and postal services sectors.
