  • Exploration

    Exploration activities yielded positive results at the beginning of 2017 with a new oil and gas discovery in the PL 128/128D license (Eni’s interest 11.5%), nearby the production facilities of the Norne field (Eni’s interest 6.9%). This new discovery is in line with Eni’s exploration strategy of focusing on near-field incremental activities for a fast-track development. In july 2017 Eni has also made a new discovery in the PL 532 license, southwest of the Johan Castberg field, in the Kayak prospect of the Barents Sea. Here, in 2016, Eni was awarded the following exploration licenses: the PL 229D (Eni operator with a 65% interest), PL 849 (Eni’s interest 30%), PL 900 (Eni operator with a 90% interest) and PL 901 (Eni’s interest 30%) licenses. In the Norwegian section of the North Sea, Eni was awarded the operatorship of the PL 816 exploration license with a 70% interest.
