Our activities in the Republic of Congo

Congolese workers walk inside the plant

We operate in the exploration, development and production of hydrocarbons in the Republic of Congo, where we are focussed on increasing the production of gas, both associated and non-associated, for domestic and export markets, with the Congo LNG project, currently in its production phase, and we are developing the Marine XII project. We are also active in the chemical and agri-business sectors.

How we operate in the country

The Republic of Congo is focusing on LNG

Our exploration activities are focused on the conventional and deep offshore areas off the coast of Pointe-Noire and in the onshore area of Koilou. To develop and market the country’s gas resources, we have made major investments in two floating liquefied natural gas (LNG) plants. These plants will allow us to produce electricity for the domestic market and export LNG to Europe.

From castor beans, a new energy for the Republic of Congo

We are developing agribusiness projects, in line with Eni’s decarbonization strategy. Our first agri-hub, a pressing plant under construction in the south of the country, produce vegetable oil for use in Eni’s biorefinery in Gela. We are also developing a project to distribute improved stoves which will replace traditional biomass devices and significantly reduce the impact on forests, with positive effects also on health while cooking.

Other initiatives in Congo

We support the local communities in strengthening their skills in agriculture and entrepreneurship with the Hinda Integrated Project. Other projects are also underway for access to drinking water, improved health services, and primary education in several villages. We promote access to education through the Alpha Hinda project and access to energy by building power plants and upgrading electricity transmission infrastructure. We also promote culture among the population. In addition, we have launched two projects with Eni Foundation to treat and prevent diseases among vulnerable families.

First CONGO LNG gas cargo departs

With this first shipment, the Republic of the Congo enters the group of LNG exporting countries, thereby contributing to its economic development and to global energy security.

Natural gas production started

Natural gas production from the offshore Congo LNG project begins, through the floating Tango FLNG plant.

Congo LNG project opening

An official ceremony marks the start of the project to build a second plant to produce liquefied natural gas.

Project launch for the construction of the Congo LNG plant

The agreement provides for the construction and installation of a floating liquefied natural gas production unit.

Acquisition of Tango FLNG plant

The facility (Floating Liquefied Natural) will be used as part of the natural gas development project in the Marine XII block.

Agreement signed for the increase of gas exports

The agreement provides for the acceleration and increase of gas production in Congo, in addition to its export.

MoU signed for nergy transition

The memorandum of understanding marks the start of activities for the joint development of oil production for biorefining.

Nené Marine production kicks off

The field, located in the Marine XII block, started just sixteen months after the exploration discovery.

Beginning of activities in the country

Through the company Eni Congo S.A., hydrocarbon exploration activities start.
