Activities

  • Exploration

    Exploration activity yielded positive results with the near-field Meleiha South 1X, Aman East 1X and Karnak Deep 1X oil wells in the Meleiha concession (Eni's interest 76%). The discoveries were already linked to the existing production facilities in the area.

  • Production

    In 2017, hydrocarbon production was 230 thousand boe/day net to Eni, 12,66% of annual production of hydrocarbons. Eni operates over a total developed and undeveloped area of 25,375 square kilometres (9,192 square kilometres net to Eni). In December 2017, production start-up was achieved by means of offshore wells and subsea facility at the Zohr field (Eni operator with a 50% interest) in a record time-to-market, in less than two and a half years from discovery. Eni closed two agreements with major international players in the oil&gas business for the disposal of a 40% interest in the giant Zohr field, with the approval by Egyptian government. These transactions are a part of Eni's “Dual Exploration Model”. In June 2018, Eni has finalized a 10% stake sale in the Shorouk concession to Mubadala Petroleum.

Projects

  • Nooros

    Nooros is a gas field located in Egypt, offshore the Nile Delta: a confirmation of the effectiveness of our near-field exploratory strategy; the reservoir was discovered in July 2015 and production started in September of the same year. In spring 2018 Nooros has reached a production level of 215,000 BOE per day.

  • Zohr

    Zohr is the largest gas discovery ever made in Egypt and in the Mediterranean Sea. Eni has produced its first gas from the supergiant Zohr field in a record time for this type of field, less than two and a half years from the discovery. For this reason, it is one of seven record-breaking projects from Eni, all of which are remarkable for their rapid approval rates and times to start-up.

Agreements

  • Memorandum of understanding between Eni and UNDP

    At the United Nations General Assembly on 24 September 2018, Eni signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) with the aim of achieving its Sustainable Development Goals – and particularly its target for providing access to energy by 2030, actions to combat climate change and the protection, cleaning up and sustainable use of the global ecosystem. The partnership, which involves no financial commitments, is focused on the African continent, initially involving the countries in which we operate, such as Angola, the Republic of Congo, Egypt, Ghana, Mozambique and Nigeria. The commitment from the UNDP focuses on accelerating the positive impact of our company’s initiatives, including improving the regulatory framework, transferring technical skills, providing support for access to guarantee funds for investment in renewables and monitoring/certifying activities.
