In Val d’Agri with Upstream activities

The largest onshore hydrocarbon field in Europe In Basilicata, where innovation drives our development model.

Innovation, efficiency and transparency for sustainable management of activities

We are operators of the Val d’Agri concession with 61%, while the remaining share belongs to Shell. 100% production is equal to about 75 thousand barrels per day of oil (average output) which is about 63% of the country's oil production and 4 million cubic meters per day of gas. We extract crude oil from the 24 wells currently in production in the Val d’Agri concession from the Monte Alpi, Monte Enoc and Cerro Falcone fields. In 2019 the fields provided 47% of Eni production in Italy. The crude oil is sent to the Centro Olio Val d’Agri in Viggiano (COVA) for a first processing and then, through an oil pipeline, to the refinery of Taranto. Hydrocarbon production in Basilicata comes mainly from COVA and, to a lesser extent, from the Centro Olio di Pisticci and from the Pisticci gas plant.

During the 2020, maintenance and production optimization activities project were completed at the Viggiano Oil Center in the Val d’Agri concession and activities for the application of Blue Water technology continue at the Val d’Agri Oil Center.
