On 6 November 2014, Eni signed a Memorandum of Understanding at the Ministry of Economic Development with trade unions, institutions and Confindustria, for the conversion of the site into a bio-refinery, based on the model adopted in Venice, and the creation a logistics hub. In August 2017 VIA/AIA authorisation by the Italian Ministry of the Environment and Protection of the Seas and Territory and the Ministry of Cultural Heritage marks an important stage in the completion of the project, which is expected by June 2018.

Activities

  • Exploration & Production

    In the context of upstream activities, to date the economic commitment sustained is equal to 70% of the total expenditure on activities for the valorisation of mature fields. Following the ruling by the Italian Council of State on 31 August 2016 rejecting the appeal made by various environmental associations and four Sicilian municipalities, we have confirmed that we wish to continue with the project to develop the offshore Argo and Cassiopea gas fields.

  • Refining

    Through the enhancement of existing facilities and the application of proprietary technologies, activities in this area foresee the conversion of unconventional first (palm oil) and second generation (animal fat, frying oils) raw materials into green diesel, green GPL and green naphtha.

Gela

On 6 November 2014, Eni signed a Memorandum of Understanding at the Ministry of Economic Development with trade unions, institutions and Confindustria, for the conversion of the site into a bio-refinery, based on the model adopted in Venice, and the creation a logistics hub. In August 2017 VIA/AIA authorisation by the Italian Ministry of the Environment and Protection of the Seas and Territory and the Ministry of Cultural Heritage marks an important stage in the completion of the project, which is expected by June 2018.

Projects

  • Bio-refineries

    Through its Bio-refineries Project, Eni has reconfigured the refineries in Venice and Gela by identifying innovative solutions using “green” cycles that are both environmentally and economically sustainable. In particular, a business model has been developed that, through the upgrading of existing plants and Eni proprietary technologies, facilitates the conversion of unconventional and low-cost biological raw materials, such as vegetable oils and spent cooking oil, into high added value finished products (e.g. green diesel, green LPG, green naphtha).

  • Alternating School-Work project

    The Alternating School-Work project is one of the initiatives introduced by Eni following the signing of a memorandum of understanding with the Italian Ministry of Education (MIUR) and Ministry of Labour and Social Policies (MLPS) to promote full integration between business and educational establishments. The programme aims to provide an overview of the current energy situation and help children in their career choices, allowing them to discover a range of professional roles at Eni from up close and encouraging them to develop the transferrable skills needed for successful entry into the world of work.

  • First Level Apprenticeship

    The First Level Apprenticeship project, another of the initiatives that aims to promote full integration between business and educational establishments, involves students carrying out work experience and training at Eni’s premises alongside their regular studies. This is achieved through on-the-job training, traditional classroom-based courses and e-learning. The students involved come predominantly from technical and vocational colleges and attend various Eni industrial sites, from the Gela, Venice and Sannazzaro refineries to the Oil Centres in Val d’Agri. They are supported by tutors from Eni, who work closely with their school teachers.

  • Safety Training Center

    A new centre for the provision of training and refresher courses related to the conduct of on-site operations has been operating since June 2016. The Safety Training Centre will be able to handle up to 1,400 employees a year, offering important opportunities for the territory.

  • The Guayule project

    In the field of Green Chemistry, an experimental agricultural line has been initiated for the project, involving the transplantation of 100,000 guayule seedlings at 2 farms belonging to the Agricultural Development  Authority (ESA) of the Region of Sicily. Initial results will be available in the second half of 2017.
