Asia Pacific

We combine activities in the energy sector with initiatives for local development in the vast area that extends from China to Indonesia, passing through Australia.


New energy and geographical frontiers

Our challenges

We are committed to contributing to the decarbonisation of the continent, reducing climate-changing emissions from unsustainable sources and working with countries to improve people's access to energy and preserve the ecosystem.

For many, the 21st century will be the “Asian Century”, mainly due to the extraordinary economic growth of China, the Indian subcontinent and South-East Asia, areas that are assuming greater importance in global value chains. Asian economic development has meant that, along with increased energy demand, there has also been considerable progress in terms of people's access to energy. This is a positive trend, but increasingly challenging due to the size of the economies involved, making the region central to the energy transition: Asia Pacific now emits about half of global climate-changing gas emissions. Viewed from an energy perspective, the climate challenge becomes even more relevant in a continent largely dependent on unsustainable sources like coal, which continue to play a major role in electricity generation. Combating pollution is considered a political priority, especially in China, which has raised the bar when it comes to climate ambition by announcing its intention to reach peak emissions by 2030 and carbon neutrality by 2060. This is a strategic decision by the country to promote development and energy security, taken with careful consideration and commitment vis-à-vis the international community. The need to reduce emissions and preserve the ecosystem will increasingly shape government choices and energy solutions in the rest of the region as well.

The strategy

We aim to develop innovative low-carbon technologies on the continent and the circularity of industrial processes. At the same time, we promote initiatives aimed at local development, including through better management of household food waste.

Economic growth, both current and future, makes the region a prodigious outlet for the development of our know-how, especially our expertise on new technologies conceived to promote decarbonisation, the reuse and recycling of materials and the sale of our most environmentally friendly products. We aim to produce natural gas for the benefit of host countries and sell increasing volumes of LNG that can replace coal, helping to reduce emissions while meeting the region's growing energy needs. Opportunities for cooperation are abundant in the area, including through specific agreements focusing on the skills and innovative technologies that Eni has already developed in its transition process and therefore are readily available. In order to achieve sustainable development objectives in the region, we promote the development of advanced biofuels, renewable energy and circular economy projects, including through the exploitation of waste and food waste, alongside sustainability initiatives for the benefit of local populations (education, health services, agriculture) and the preservation of biodiversity.

Our main development projects on the Asian continent

We develop business activities across the area, promoting the socio-economic growth of countries


Bhit: photovoltaic in Pakistan

The Bhit photovoltaic plant in Pakistan, launched at the end of 2019 to support the neighbouring gas field, will produce around 20 GWh per year.

We will use the sun's energy to reduce gas consumption and avoid emitting 140,000 tonnes of CO₂ into the atmosphere.

Food and Health in Myanmar

With this project we aim to improve crop productivity and farmers' resilience by supporting the rural advisory service for the promotion of good agricultural practices. SDGs: 3,6


We want to optimise access to irrigation technology in the field of horticultural production and nutritional safety on both a domestic and community level.

Jangkrik: hydrocarbons in Indonesia

This project, which was quickly developed and brought into production, is located in offshore Kalimantan, Indonesia.

Once gas has been produced and treated, it is sent to the onshore plant connected to the transport system and then onwards to the Bontang liquefaction plant.


Our operations

From Indonesia to Japan, we are active in the continent in the exploration and production of hydrocarbons, oil and gas refining, the electricity market and in the construction of plants drawing on renewable sources. We operate in:
