Independent Resources


The company's core activities are the development of a major underground gas storage facility, together with upstream assets in Italy and North Africa. The directors believe that the potential for integration and leverage between these storage, exploration and production projects provides the foundation on which to build a profitable, relatively low-risk, high-value business.

Rivara underground gas storage facility

Independent Resources plans to construct a large underground storage (UGS) facility by storing natural gas in a deep, naturally fractured reservoir in Italy's Po Valley. The Rivara project has been granted a provisional long-term concession by Italy's Ministry of Economic Development (MSE) which is subject to completion of a satisfactory environmental impact assessment and final approval by MSE. MSE and Italy's gas markets regulator (AEEG) are eager to encourage new gas storage capacity in the country to alleviate the well-documented deficit in this sector of the gas supply chain which is a matter of public interest.
