Eni is doing "Exploration" in Cova since 1998

Activities

  • Exploration & Production

    Eni is the operator of the Val d’Agri concession (Eni 60.77%) in Basilicata. Production from the Monte Alpi, Monte Enoc and Cerro Falcone fields is treated at the Viggiano oil centre. Currently the Val d’Agri field produces about 75,000 barrels of oil a day and 4.6 million SMC3 a day that is accounted for about 40 percent of Eni’s total Italian oil and gas production. A development programme is also underway following an agreement with the Basilicata Region signed in 1998. Meanwhile, in the exploration sector, activities for the evaluation of residual mineral potential of the area continue.

Basilicata

In Val d’Agri Eni operates with full respect for environmental protection with the adoption of cutting-edge technology and detailed territorial controls, carried out using a monitoring network that is unique in the world. The activities of the COVA (Centro Olio Val d'Agri) and our practice of treating production water and re-injection in the Costa Molina 2 well have been the subject of an enormous quantity of authorisations from competent bodies.

Upstream Italy
