Eni has been operating in Kazakhstan since 1990


  • Exploration & Production

    We are co-operators of the giant Karachaganak field (Eni 29.25%), which produces oil, condensates and natural gas. In 2016, production of the Karachaganak field averaged 231 kbbl/d of liquids (61 kbbl/d net to Eni) and 925 mmcf/d of natural gas (247 mmcf/d net to Eni). In addition Eni holds a 16.81% working interest in the North Caspian Sea Production Sharing Agreement (NCSPSA). The NCSPSA defines terms and conditions for the exploration and development of the giant Kashagan field, which was discovered in the Northern section of the contractual area in the year 2000 over an undeveloped area extending for 4,600 square kilometers. The production of 185 kboe/d was achieved by year-end. The production capacity of 370 kbbl/d planned for the Phase 1 is expected to be achieved during 2017, when gas reinjection comes online.


Eni has been present in Kazakhstan since the early 1990s in the Exploration & Production sector.

    As part of the North Caspian Sea PSA, in which Eni holds a 16.81% stake, one of the most important discoveries of the last thirty years was made in July 2000: the giant Kashagan field, located 80 km south-east of Atyrau (Kazakhstan), in the Northern Caspian Sea.

  • Karachaganak

    Located onshore in the western part of the country, Karachaganak (29.25%, co-operator with Shell) is a giant oilfield that produces oil, condensates and natural gas. The operations carried out by the Karachaganak Petroleum Operating Consortium (KPO) are governed by a Production Sharing Agreement. Production in the year amounted to 231,000 barrels/day of liquids (61,000 for Eni) and 26 million cubic metres/day of natural gas (about 7 million for Eni).


  • Agreement with Kazakhstan

    JSC KazMunayGas (KMG) Chief Executive Officer, Sauat Mynbayev and Eni's CEO, Claudio Descalzi, signed an agreement at the Foreign Investors’ Council in Astana, in june 2017. The agreement renews the conditions for the transfer to Eni of 50% of the subsoil use rights in the Isatay block, located in the Caspian Sea, for exploration and production of hydrocarbons. The block, which is estimated to have significant potential for hydrocarbon resources, will be operated by a Joint Operating Company (JOC) formed by Eni and KMG. The JOC will begin working as soon as the transfer of 50% interest in the License is completed, subject to the approval of the transaction by the Republic of Kazakhstan.
