  • Exploration & Production

    The main Eni’s asset in Angola is the Block 15/06 (Eni operator with a 36.84% interest) with the West Hub and the East Hub projects. Production comes from the West Hub and the East Hub projects that in 2018 produced 155 kboe/d. The development program plans to hook up the blocks discoveries to two FPSO in order to support production plateau. In November 2018, Eni signed an amendment of the Block 15/06 PSA contract that defines an additional exploration acreage in the western area of the block. The agreement confirms Eni’s near-field strategy for a fast-track development of exploration successes leveraging on existing production facilities.  Exploration activities yielded positive results with the Kalimba and Afoxé oil discoveries in the East Hub project area, with an estimated resources of 400-500 mmbbl of oil in place, and the Agogo oil discovery in the West Hub project area with an estimated resources of 450-650 mmbbl of oil in place. The development of the discoveries will leverage on synergies with existing facilities.

  • East Hub Development

    The East Hub Development Project is an area located in Block 15/06 offshore Angola, and includes 9 subsea wells, of which 5 are producers and 4 are water injectors, in water depth ranging between 450 and 550 metres. The hydrocarbons which are produced from these wells are transported via a pipeline system to the FPSO to be treated and stored prior to export. 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.

  • West Hub Development

    The West Hub Development Project includes the development of the Sangos, Cinguvu, Mpungi, Mpungi North, Ochigufu and Vandumbu fields, at water depths ranging from 1,000 to 1,500 metres. The wells are arranged in groups and connected to the N’Goma Floating Production Storage and Offloading Unit. 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.


  • Agreement with Angola

    Eni’s CEO Claudio Descalzi and Sonangol’s Chairman of the Board of Directors Carlos Saturnino signed in November 2017 an agreement that assigns operatorship of Cabinda North block to Eni, as well as 48% the block’s rights. The signing took place in Luanda at the presence of the President of the Republic of Angola João Gonçalves Lourenço and the Prime Minister of Italy Paolo Gentiloni. Cabinda North, of which Eni previously controlled 15%, is an onshore block located in a little explored oil basin in the north of the country, where Eni will be able to leverage the mining knowledge acquired in activities in a neighboring area in the Republic of Congo. In case of significant discoveries, production will be facilitated by existing infrastructure.

  • Agreement with Sonangol

    In June 2019, Eni and Sonangol signed in Luanda the Heads of Agreement for the incorporation of Solenova Ltd, a joint controlled company set up to assess and develop renewable energy opportunities in Angola. The creation of this new company is consistent with the country’s energy strategy that establishes a target of 800 MW of installed renewable capacity by 2025, with a specific focus on utility scale solar projects.

  • 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.
