    (ANSAmed) - ROME, NOVEMBER 20 - Gas delivery from Libya has been reactivated, the Snam group wrote on Twitter. The entry point in Gela, Sicily, is registering the first influx of gas from Libya and 3.5 million cubic metres are to be delivered on Wednesday, the group said. The gas pipeline was closed on November 11 after protests by the Berber Amazigh ethnic groupy mostly concerning the Libyan installation of Mellitah, also operated by Italian energy giant Eni

         Eni chief executive Paolo Scaroni had said the terminal and Greenstream were safe and there would be no supply problems for Italy for the time being.

         On Tuesday a spokesperson for the Libyan national oil company said the Mellitah terminal was functioning again and the Berber group had suspended its protest there on Saturday. (ANSAmed).
