A continent in the history, the present and the future of Eni.
The six-legged dog first left its pawprints in the Egyptian desert in 1954. Today, Africa makes up more than half of Eni’s total crude oil and natural gas production, confirming Eni as the leading international producer in the continent. In recent years we have made several major discoveries in Egypt, the Republic of Congo, Mozambique, Angola and Ghana, and we continue to work on many large development projects.

The start of an exciting new partnership, Eni has signed an agreement with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to promote renewables energies, energy efficiency, re-forestation and clean cooking initiatives. Together we will work to improve access to sustainable energy in Africa and so help achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This development was followed a few days later by a meeting between the President of Ghana and Eni’s Chief Executive: an opportunity to discuss the frontline role the country has to play in the partnership Eni has established with the UNDP.
We want to develop Africa’s resources for the benefit of the continent and have invested in domestic capital to promote local development from the very start. The key to this is access to energy, which leads to development and stability, allowing Africa to fully harness its growth potential.
