The refinery lies on an area of around 320 hectares in the municipalities of Sannazzaro de’ Burgondi and Ferrera Erbognone, in the province of Pavia. It lies in the centre of the industrial triangle between Turin, Milan and Genoa, along the oil pipeline that links the terminal in Genoa with French Switzerland. Such a favourable, carefully chosen position has led to the development of an efficient refuelling and distribution pipeline network, thus leading not only to the effective handling of products, with precise and quicker supplies, but especially a drastic reduction in the environmental impact linked to land transport.
Over the years, the Sannazzaro refinery has been subject to progressive technological improvements. These have led to a production capacity today of 11.1 million tonnes per year of petroleum products, with one of the highest levels of complexity and conversion capacity in Europe.
The oil product market for energy use, from LPG to diesel, consists increasingly of high-quality fuels. To respond to this environmentally-friendly need, heavier products must be transformed into hydrogenated products with a lower environmental footprint.
With this in mind, progressive investments have been made in the Sannazzaro refinery in relation to its production cycle, including:
hydrogen production and Hydrocracking plants to maximise diesel production;
gasification plants, which produce sulphur- and pollutant-free syngas from heavy oil;
deasphalting plant, able to recover heavy oil fractions for subsequent conversion to petrol;
Eni Slurry Technology (EST) conversion plant. The Eni license process, used to produce fuels from heavy crude oil residues, using a special catalyst developed and patented by us.
The adoption of these innovative technologies increases the total conversion rate of heavy oils to 92%.
EST – Eni Slurry Technology: reduced emissions and consumption
The proprietary technology we use to convert refining residues, heavy oils and bitumen into high quality fuels and light products.
The sustainability strategy is integrated into the business model and stimulates projects and initiatives to respond to the increasingly diversified and constantly evolving needs of stakeholders. The Eni operating model also proves its excellence through the enhancement of the local communities, environmental protection, the dissemination of the culture and principles of sustainable development, supporting initiatives, working with universities, schools and networks of excellence and promoting research and innovation, with particular attention to those initiatives that bring long-term benefits to the community.

Eni adopts a model based on the centrality of its people and their protection, the development of skills and competences, offering everyone the same opportunities on the basis of common criteria of merit and without discrimination.
