Exploration & Production

Eni has been present in Tunisia since 1961. In 2018, Eni’s production amounted to 9 kboe/d. Eni’s activities are located mainly in the Southern Desert areas and in the Mediterranean offshore facing Hammamet, over a developed acreage of 3,600 square kilometers (1,558 square kilometers net to Eni).

Exploration and production activities in this country are regulated by concessions.


Production mainly comes from the following operated fields: Maamoura and Baraka offshore fields (Eni’s interest 49%); Adam (Eni's interest 25%), Oued Zar (Eni's interest 50% ), Djebel Grouz (Eni's interest 50%), MLD (Eni’s interest 50%) and El Borma (Eni’s interest 50%) onshore fields.

Development Development activities concerned production optimization at the producing concessions to mitigate mature fields declines.

Gas & LNG Power and Marketing

In the gas sector, between 1977 and 1983, Eni built the Transmed gas pipeline linking Algeria to Italy via Tunisia.

The gas pipeline is one of the most demanding projects that have been put into operation so far. This pipeline is 740-kilometer long, has five compression stations, and transports natural gas from Algeria across Tunisia from Oued Saf Saf at the Algerian border to Cap Bon on the Sicily Channel where it links with the TMPC pipeline.

Refining & Marketing

Eni is active in the Tunisian market for bitumen and lubricants. Regarding the former, since 1998 Eni has held a 34% stake in the Bitumed JV, the company that imports and markets bitumen in Tunisia, and is also present in the distribution of lubricants, through a thirty-year partnership with the state-owned company Société Nationale de Distribution des Pétroles (SNDP).
