About the Speaker

Nicola Battilana is the new Chief Executive Officer of DESFA, the Hellenic Gas Transmission System Operator.

Born near Genoa, Italy, in 1967, he graduated – after college in Nautical School – in Electrical Engineering at Genoa University.

After a few collaborations within the university and a period in the Italian Navy, he joined Snam in 1995, where he worked for 3 years in the technical area.

After a diversified professional path in the operations area, that led him through LNG terminal and gas network maintenance to pipeline construction, with several assignments of increasing responsibility, he was appointed in 2009 Network Development VP and in 2010 Network Dispatching and Balancing VP.

In 2013 he started up as SVP of the Technical Division, with the aim of promoting operational excellence and granting technical support in the then starting foreign asset acquisition process.

In October 2015, he was appointed CEO of TAG Gmbh, the Austrian company owned by Snam (85%) and Gas Connect Austria (15%) that owns and operates the Trans Austria Pipeline, the strategic transit infrastructure transporting ca. 40% of the Italian annual natural gas demand through Austria.

Before his new assignment as CEO of DESFA, he was managing, since September 2018, Snam’s activities in Greece and the Balkans, including the opening of a representative office in Athens.
