Exploration & Production

Eni has been present in Tunisia since 1961. In 2016, Eni’s production amounted to 11 kboe/d. Eni’s activities are located mainly in the Southern Desert areas and in the Mediterranean offshore facing Hammamet, over a developed and undeveloped acreage of 3,600 square kilometers (1,558 square kilometers net to Eni).

Exploration and production in this country are regulated by concessions.

Production Production mainly comes from operated Maamoura and Baraka offshore blocks (Eni’s interest 49%) and the Adam (Eni operator with a 25% interest), Oued Zar (Eni operator with a 50% interest), Djebel Grouz (Eni operator with a 50% interest), MLD (Eni’s interest 50%) and El Borma (Eni’s interest 50%) onshore blocks.

Development Production optimization represents the main activity currently performed in the above listed concessions to mitigate the natural field production decline.

Exploration Exploration activities yielded positive results with the Larich Est-1 discovery well, which put into production through a tie-in to the existing treatment facilities of the MLD concession.

Gas & Power

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.

Gas production in the country in 2016 was 19.4 mmcf per day.

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)
