Exploration & Production

Eni has been operating in Algeria since 1981.

In 2016, Eni signed with the relevant Authorities an unitisation agreement of the SF-SFNE fields and a 10-year extension of the fields in the Blocks 401a/402a (Eni’s interest 55%).

Production start-up was achieved at the CAFC oil project in the Block 405b (Eni’s interest 75%) at the end of the year, with start-up of 6 wells and linkage at the existing treatment facilities of the MLE project. The development activities are expected to be completed during 2017.

Development and optimization activities progressed at the MLE and CAFC gas fields by means of construction and infilling activities, as well as production optimization.

Other development activities concerned infilling activities and production optimization at the Rod field (Eni operator with a 66% interest), also by means of the application of the Enhanced Oil Recovery WAG (Water Alternate Gas injection) technology.
Eni’s exploration and production activities in Algeria are regulated by Production Sharing Agreements (PSA) and licences.
