Exploration & Production
Eni has been present in Republic of Congo since 1968, and activities are focused in the Exploration & Production sector in conventional and deep offshore and onshore areas.
In 2016, production, net to Eni, totalled 98 kboe/d. Activities are conducted in the conventional and deep offshore facing Pointe-Noire and onshore zones covering a developed and undeveloped area of 2,451 square kilometres (1,168 square kilometres net to Eni). Exploration and production activities in Congo are regulated by Production Sharing Agreements.
In December 2016, production ramp-up was achieved at the Nené Marine field, in the Marine XII block (Eni operator with a 65% interest). The project, that is one of the seven "EniRecord" project, was completed extremely quickly; it took only a year, even less than initially predicted.
Development activities progressed at the Litchendjili production field in the Marine XII block and during the year the peak production of approximately 16 kboe/d was achieved. Gas production feeds the CEC power plant (Eni’s interest 20%).
In December 2016, Eni signed a framework agreement with the Republic of the Congo aimed at integrated development and monetization of gas produced in the Country, in line with three strategic guidelines of access to energy, of local development and of zero flaring in the development programs of oil and gas discoveries.
