Italy Oil and Gas Upstream Fiscal and Regulatory Guide

Italy Oil and Gas Upstream Fiscal and Regulatory Guide



Italy governs upstream petroleum operations through a royalty and tax framework. In 2019, the country significantly increased surface fees and imposed a moratorium on offshore exploration. These steps are part of a major push towards progressing the energy transition and achieving ambitious decarbonisation targets in the country. The offshore moratorium was set for an initial 18 month period, although the economic shock caused by the COVID-19 pandemic may effect this. Additionally onshore exploration has been significantly impeded due to sustained environmental pressure and public hostility towards drilling. It is possible that in the longer term, regulation and taxation on the petroleum industry will increase further as the country continues its push towards the energy transition and environmental pressure remains.
