Rome, 28 May 2014 – Eni today announces a new organisational structure, which will support the delivery of its strategy based on selective growth in the upstream sector and a turnaround in the mid-downstream segments.
The new organisational structure replaces the divisional model with an integrated operational structure strongly focused on industrial objectives. That means that activities previously managed within E&P, R&M, Versalis and Syndial will be redistributed amongst the following business units:
- Development, Operations and Technology,
- Downstream and Industrial
These will join the existing business units of Midstream and Retail Gas&Power.
At the same time, all staff functions will be centralised, with significant benefits in terms of efficiency and executional capability.
The new organisational structure has the following objectives.
- Streamlining decision-making processes
- Increasing the focus on core business activities
- Enhancing key competences
- Increasing efficiency in the downstream and industrial segment
- Maximising synergies in staff functions
Claudio Descalzi, Eni CEO, commented:
“The aim of this new organization is to fully leverage all of Eni’s resources, streamlining structures, avoiding duplications and transforming Eni into an operational company. This will support efficiency gains in terms of time, costs and investments, and will allow us to respond rapidly and flexibly to the business challenges that we are facing‘.
The new organizational structure will be fully implemented in the next few weeks. Consistently with this structure, from the beginning of 2015 Eni will modify its financial reporting segments, and will present results for the Upstream, Midstream and Downstream business segments.
