San Donato Milanese (Milan), 11 September 2014 - In relation to the preliminary investigation launched by the Milan Prosecutor's office on the acquisition of the block OPL 245 in 2011, Eni continues to deny any illegal conduct.

The entire payment for the issuance of the license to Eni and Shell was made uniquely to the Nigerian government. Eni notes that, according to documents received yesterday as part of a foreign procedure ordering the seizure of a third party's bank account, following  a request by the Prosecutor of Milan, Eni's CEO and Chief Development, Operations and Technology Officer are under preliminary investigation by the Milan prosecutor's office.
