In Sicily, EniMed manages the production and processing of liquid and gaseous hydrocarbons. Eni's has had a presence there since the mid-1950s, with the discovery of the giant oil field at Gela and with the so-called minor ones at Pontedirillo and Cammarata Pozzillo. In the same period the gas fields of Gagliano and Bronte were discovered. In 1966, the Ragusa field was acquired and more recently, in the 1980s, the Perla and Prezioso offshore fields were discovered and put into production. EniMed's operational activity in Sicily for the exploration and production of hydrocarbons is managed by the Gela Management Centre, which oversees the operations of 4 Oil Plants, 3 Onshore Platforms and 3 Gas Plants. One of the most important new projects among those envisaged by the 2014 memorandum of understanding, is that of developing the gas fields of Argo-Cassiopea and is in line with Eni's strategy of promoting natural gas as a low-emission energy source.
