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

The challenges we face

We are committed to contributing to the decarbonization of the continent, reducing climate-changing emissions. At the same time, we are working with different countries to facilitate people’s access to energy and preserve the ecosystem.

For many people, the 21st century will be the “Asian century”, mainly because of the extraordinary economic growth of China, the Indian sub-continent and South-East Asia – areas which increasingly feature in global supply chains. As well as an increase in the demand for energy, Asia’s economic development has led to considerable progress in terms of people’s access to energy. This is a positive trend, but also increasingly problematic due to the sheer size of the economies involved. Already the Asia-Pacific region is responsible for emitting half of all global climate-changing gases and, looked at from an energy-centred point of view, the climate challenge appears all the greater in a continent largely dependent on unsustainable sources such as coal, which continues to play a primary role in electricity generation. Countering pollution is seen as a political priority, especially in China, which has raised the bar where climate change is concerned, announcing its intention to ensure that peak emissions are reached by 2030 and that the country will be carbon neutral by 2060. In the rest of the region, too, the need to reduce emissions and preserve ecosystems will increasingly influence government decisions and energy-production solutions.

Our strategy

We aim to develop innovative low-carbon technologies and a circular-economy approach to industrial processes. Meanwhile, we are promoting local development initiatives, including making better use of household food waste.

Economic growth, present and future, makes this region a wonderful market in which to roll out our know-how, particularly expertise based on the new technologies developed to bring about decarbonization, the reuse and recycling of materials, and the marketing of our more environmentally friendly products. We aim to produce natural gas to benefit our host countries and to market growing volumes of LNG to replace coal, thus helping to reduce emissions and at the same time meet the region’s burgeoning energy needs. There are multiple opportunities for co-operation, with the prospect of specific agreements based on the innovative expertise and technologies Eni has already developed on its transition itinerary – solutions which are immediately available. To achieve the region’s own sustainable development goals, we are promoting the development of advanced biofuels, renewables and circular-economy projects, in some cases by making use of rubbish and food wastes, alongside sustainability initiatives for the benefit of local communities, such as training, health services and agriculture, and biodiversity conservation.

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:
