July 29 (Reuters) - Italian gas company Snam reported a rise in first-half revenue on Thursday as an increase in tariffs offset a decrease in natural gas volumes transported due to COVID-19 and milder temperatures.
Sales in the first half rose 3.3% to 1.35 billion euros ($1.59 billion).
Snam, which makes most of its revenue from its regulated gas transport business in Italy, saw first-half core earnings stable at 1.11 billion euros compared to a year ago.
Europe's biggest gas pipeline company confirmed its full-year net profit guidance of 1.1 billion euros and confirmed it expected limited impact from COVID-19 on its investment plans.
