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 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.
