Our exploration and production in the Congo are governed by a production sharing agreement. Production is from the fields in Nené Marine and Litchendjili (65%), Zatchi (55.25%), Loango (42.5%), Ikalou (100%), Djambala (50%), Foukanda and Mwafi (58%), Kitina (52%), Awa Paloukou (90%), M’Boundi (82%), Kouakouala (74.25%), Zingali and Loufika (100%), and totalled about 96,000 barrels equivalent per day in 2018 (74,000 from Eni shares). Fields not operated, lying in the production permits of Pointe-Noire, Grands Fonds and Likouala (35%) altogether provided about 51,000 barrels equivalent per day (18,000 from Eni shares).
In 2018 development work was on the producing project Nené Marine in the block Marine XII, in phase 2A. The same year saw drilling and the sealine to the production platform in the field Litchendjili in the block Marine XII finished, as well as the water re-injection project for operated fields in production in Loango and Zatchi, for developing the Nené Marine project, approved in December 2018 and now in phase 2B. Finally, in the same year we started engineering work to increase the 170 MW electrical capacity of Congo power station (20% owned by Eni), by installing a third turbine
