Eni has been operating in Egypt since 1954


  • Exploration

    The potential at the Baltim South West field discovery (Eni operator with a 50% interest), in the conventional offshore, was upped to approximately 1 Tcf of gas in place due to successful test of the delineation well. The discovery is located near the Great Nooros Area.

  • Production

    In 2016, hydrocarbon production was 185 thousand boe/day net to Eni, 10,5% of annual production of hydrocarbons. Eni operates over a total developed and undeveloped area of 28,031 square kilometres (10,665 square kilometres net to Eni). Eni’s main producing activities concern Nooros, that reached a production plateau of 85.5 kboe/d in just 13 months after the discovery in July 2015 and ahead of schedule, and Zohr, started-up in December 2017, in less than two and a half years from the discovery.


Eni has been operating in Egypt since 1954, mainly in the Exploration & Production and Gas & Power sectors.

  • Nooros

    Nooros is a gas field located in Egypt, offshore the Nile Delta: a confirmation of the effectiveness of our near-field exploratory strategy; the reservoir was discovered in July 2015 and production started in September of the same year. In spring 2017 Nooros has reached a production level of 170,000 BOE per day.

  • Zohr

    Zohr is the largest gas discovery ever made in Egypt and in the Mediterranean Sea. Eni has produced its first gas from the supergiant Zohr field in a record time for this type of field, less than two and a half years from the discovery. For this reason, 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.

The discovery and development of the Zohr gas field in Egypt

Like all great exploration discoveries also the Zohr discovery is full of surprises, the unexpected, intuitions, mistakes, skill, enthusiasm, and ups and downs in which the human element is as crucial as the technology. It's a story worth telling from the beginning because we already know what Eni has ...
