In their meeting on Wednesday the two executives also discussed the implementation of renewables projects in Libya, Eni said in a statement. State-controlled Eni has been working together with the Italian government to clinch deals with alternative gas suppliers in the face of increasing uncertainty over supplies from Russia.
