In May 2019 we signed a memorandum of understanding with the national oil and gas authority, to pursue future exploration in Block 1, the mostly unexplored offshore area in the country's southern waters. In 2019 oil operations in the country should increase with the completion of a new offshore oil pipeline channelling 350,000 barrels a day to nearby Saudi Arabia. In February 2020 we also signed a new memorandum of understanding to consolidate our presence in the country's energy industry. The agreement will broaden Eni's collaboration with the company Tatweer Petroleum in areas of mutual interest, including renewable energies, liquefied natural gas (LNG) supply and exploration. In terms of LNG, the collaboration will target a more sustainable and efficient energy mix to meet Bahrain’s future energy needs.
