Eni probed by watchdog for abuse of dominance

 |  March 8, 2012

Eni is an Italian oil and gas company that is the nation’s largest industrial company. Gas Intensive, a consortium that buys natural gas for big companies, alleges that Eni has used its rights in the Transitgas and TAG pipelines to control the market, ever since Eni ended auctioning some of its capacity in the pipelines in 2001.
