Our work in the Republic of Congo

We have been in the country since 1968, in the Exploration & Production sector, where we work both offshore and onshore, in Refining & Marketing & Chemicals.

Exploration and development work goes on

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

Chemicals in the Congo

We play an active role in the Oil & Gas sector, though Versalis and its portfolio of oil field chemicals. 

 

We create energy

In the Congo all our gas production is turned into electricity for local consumption. We are continuing to develop Nené Marine and have improved the health of communities, promoted care for biodiversity and provided access to energy. In 2018 we also opened the Musée du Cercle Africain in celebration of local culture and art.

Integrated project of access to energy

Acquiring the M’Boundi field in 2007 let us launch a project for producing and distributing electricity through Djéno and CEC power stations. CEC power station was born of an initiative of ours and since 2010 has provided electricity to Pointe-Noire and Brazzaville, thanks to the expansion and renovation, respectively, of the networks to the two cities.

Nené Marine

The field Nené Marine, in the block Marine XII (of which we are an operator with 65%), located about 17 km of the coast and 28 m underwater, is near existing plants and produces hydrocarbons from the pre-salt formation Djeno, 2.5 km below seabed level. The development of Litchendjili Marine, which supplies gas to the domestic market through Congo power station, was followed by the discovery and use of oil in the Nené field.

Hinda integrated project

We help improve living conditions and socio-economic devleopment in villages in the Hinda district, in the same area as the fields M’Boundi, Kouakouala, Zingali and Loufika, where we work. We have provided access to drinking water, improved medical services and primary education. We have also informed and trained the community and increased agricultural production, in part through the CATREP project.

Kento Mwana

The project, carried out by the Eni Foundation and finished in 2012, sought to reduce the level of HIV contagion from mother to child by 2–3%, through prevention services for pregnant Congolese women, ranging from consultation to free, voluntary screening. The initiative took place in the regions of Kouilou, Niari and Cuvette, which were also involved in the Salissa Mwana project.

Salissa Mwana

The project by the Eni Foundation provided paediatric assistance in the regions of Kouilou, Niari e Cuvette, with vaccination programmes against the most common diseases. At the end of the programme, in 2012, we equipped and strengthened no less than 30 medical centres, trained medical staff and informed local people about prevention.
