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


  • Exploration & Production

    Eni is co-operator of the Karachaganak, a liquid and gas giant field, and partner 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. In 2017, production of the Karachaganak field averaged 247 kbbl/d of liquids (54 kbbl/d net to Eni) and 931 mmcf/d of natural gas (209 mmcf/d net to Eni). Development activity progressed to increase production capacity of the Kashagan field up to 450 kbbl/d by installing additional gas compression capacity through the conversion of production wells into injection wells and the upgrading of the existing facilities.

    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.
