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 2017, production, net to Eni, totalled 83 kboe/d. Activities are conducted in the conventional and deep offshore facing Pointe-Noire and onshore zones covering a developed and undeveloped area of 2,750 square kilometres (1,471 square kilometres net to Eni).
In 2017, the execution development phase of the Nene Marine Phase 2A production project in the Marine XII block (Eni operator with a 65% interest) progressed by means of:
- installation and start-up of a new production platform;
- the construction of a sealine to export production to the Kitina hub (Eni operator with a 52% interest);
- start-up of seven additional production wells. Planned development activities include the drilling of additional production wells with start-up expected in 2018 and the construction of a sealine for the linkage to Litchendjili hub in the block Marine XII. The development activities of the area include natural gas and produced water re-injection as well as the use of gas production for the power generation in order to achieve zero routine flaring. Furthermore with the completion of planned activities the associated gas will be used to feed the CEC power plant (Eni's interest 20%).
In April 2017, Eni signed with the relevant Authority an extension to the gas sale agreement to feed CEC power plant with the gas production of the Marine XII block. The agreement includes also an additional supply of 35 mmcf/d.
Furthermore, Eni is also committed to protecting the country's biodiversity. In particular in the production area of M'Boundi (Eni operator with an 83% interest), in collaboration with international NGOs, a program to protect the flora and fauna of the areas nearby to the treatment and production plants progressed.
The activities of the second phase of the Project Integrated Hinda (PIH) were started, aiming to improve life condition of local communities nearby to the M'Boundi, Kouakouala, Zingali and Loufika producing areas. The planned project includes certain initiatives to support socio-economic development of local communities with economic programs for a diversification purpose, primary education, access to water and health initiatives. In addition, a project for the construction of renewable energy training and research center started in Oyo, in the north of the country.
