Exploration & Production

Oil Platform with men at work

In 2013, oil and natural gas production of 1,619 kboe/day declined by 4.8% from 2012 mainly due to geopolitical factors. The contribution of the start-ups/ramp-ups was partly offset by the effects of planned facility downtimes and technical problems, as well as mature field declines.

Estimated net proved reserves at December 31, 2013 amounted to 6.54 bboe based on a reference Brent price of $108 per barrel. The organic reserves replacement ratio was 105% with a reserves life index of 11.1 years (11.5 years in 2012).



Exploration & Production

Exploration remains an important growth driver for the company. Throughout the plan, Eni expects new discoveries of 2 billion boe at a competitive cost of 2.6$/b. In the first two years of the plan, activity will be focused on proven plays and near-field exploration in order to quickly complete the full appraisal of resource potential while benefiting from all the logistical advantages in the development and production start-up activities.

The hydrocarbon production growth target is equal to 3.5% per year in the 2015-2018 period, and will be achieved mainly through the start-up of 16 major projects and the ramp-up of those already started in 2014, with a total contribution in excess of 650kboed in 2018. These projects will have an average breakeven level of 45$/b, and will generate an additional cumulative operating cash flow of 19 billion euros in 2015-18.
