Our activities in Indonesia

We operate in Indonesia in the exploration, production and development of hydrocarbons, both onshore and offshore. Among our main activities is the development of Merakes, a field located in the deep waters of East Kalimantan that will enable the country to increase its gas output for the domestic energy market and for export by exploiting existing infrastructure.

South East Asia is a region where rapid economic growth has generated an increase in energy demand and facilitated access to energy for the population. These factors make this area central to the energy transition, a goal for which international partnerships to reduce emissions and preserve the environment are crucial.

How we operate in the country

Offshore gas production in Indonesia

A rich portfolio of assets in the exploration, development and production phases allows us to operate in the country onshore and offshore. We have stakes in 12 production sharing contracts (PSCs), of which 9 are in deep waters. The exploration campaign conducted offshore East Kalimantan allowed the start of gas production from the Jangkrik and Merakes projects. The proximity of the two fields allows us to maximise the use of existing infrastructure, reduce costs and lead time. A significant gas discovery from the Geng North-1 exploration well drilled in North Ganal PSC has the potential to contribute substantially to the creation of a new production hub, in the Northern part of the Kutei Basin. Following the recent acquisitions of Chevron and Neptune, Eni has consolidated its position in the basin.

We work side by side with Indonesians for sustainable growth

Ensuring drinking water for the Muara Jawa and Samboja districts in East Kalimantan is the goal of one of our programmes. We supply water to around 1,600 people by drilling wells. In Samboja we support the local community with projects aimed at promoting training in agriculture, the area's main livelihood, and combating the heaping of waste in backyards.

We also have ongoing programmes to improve the quality of the products of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises and workshops to improve the population's IT skills.

New discovery in the Kutei basin

Eni announces an important gas discovery, approximately 85 km away from the east coast of Kalimantan.

Agreement for further LNG volumes

Eni ensures greater flexibility and further diversifies its LNG supplies by strengthening its presence in the growing markets of South Asia and the Far East.

Chevron asset acquisition

Eni announces the acquisition of Chevron's interests in the Kutei basin, East Kalimantan.

Cooperation on exploration activities

The Memorandum of Understanding signed by Eni and SKK Migas represents an international recognition of our technological resources.

The Maha 2 well has been drilled and tested

Located 16 kilometres south-east of the floating production unit in Jangkrik, it is a valuable accomplishment in the country following the start of production at Merakes.

Gas production starts in Merakes

The field, located in the deep waters of the Makassar Strait, consists of five subsea wells that will produce 13 million m³ of gas per day.

The Merakes development plan kicks off

The Energy Ministry approves the programme for the oil field in Indonesia's offshore.

First LNG shipment from Jangkrik

The 22,500 m³ load produced by the field is destined for the country's domestic market.

Production at Jangkrik starts ahead of schedule

The gas produced in deep waters is destined for the Botang liquefaction plant.

Eni starts operations in Indonesia

Eni began its activities in the country in 2001. It currently operates in the areas of exploration, production and development.
