Eni has been operating in Norway since 1965


  • Exploration

    Exploration activities yielded positive results at the beginning of 2017 with a new oil and gas discovery in the PL 128/128D license (Eni’s interest 11.5%), nearby the production facilities of the Norne field (Eni’s interest 6.9%). This new discovery is in line with Eni’s exploration strategy of focusing on near-field incremental activities for a fast-track development. In july 2017 Eni has also made a new discovery in the PL532 license, southwest of the Johan Castberg field, in the Kayak prospect of the Barents Sea. Here, in 2016, Eni was awarded the following exploration licenses: the PL 229D (Eni operator with a 65% interest), PL 849 (Eni’s interest 30%), PL 900 (Eni operator with a 90% interest) and PL 901 (Eni’s interest 30%) licenses. In the Norwegian section of the North Sea, Eni was awarded the operatorship of the PL 816 exploration license with a 70% interest.

  • Production

    In March 2016, production start-up was achieved at the Goliat field (Eni operator with a 65% interest) in the Barents Sea. Field production reached the target of 100 kboe/d (65 kboe/d net to Eni) and during the year peak production of approximately 114 kboe/d (approximately 74 kboe/d net to Eni) was achieved. The field is estimated to contain reserves amounting to approximately 180 mmbbl. Other main activities concerned: the drilling of infilling wells to support production at the Ekofisk and Eldfisk fields in the PL 018 (Eni’s interest 12.39%) in the Norwegian section of the North Sea and maintenance and optimization of production, mainly at the Asgard (Eni’s interest 14.82%), Heidrun (Eni’s interest 5.17%) and Norne Outside (Eni’s interest 11.5%) fields in the Norwegian Sea.


Eni’s activities in Norway are mainly focused in the Exploration & Production sector.
