Exploration & Production

Eni has been present in Australia since 2000. In 2016, Eni’s production of oil and natural gas averaged 24 kboe/d. Activities are focused on conventional and deep offshore fields, over a developed and undeveloped acreage of 16,868 square kilometers (10,383 square kilometers net to Eni).

The main production blocks in which Eni holds interests are WA-33-L (Eni’s interest 100%) and JPDA 03-13 (Eni’s interest 10.99%). In the appraisal and development phase, Eni holds interests in NT/RL8 (Eni’s interest 100%) and NT/RL7 (Eni’s interest 32.5%). In addition, Eni holds interest in 6 exploration licenses, of which 1 in the JPDA.

Exploration and production activities in Australia are regulated by concession agreements, whereas in the cooperation zone between Timor Leste and Australia (Joint Petroleum Development Area -JPDA) they are regulated by PSAs.


Block WA-33-L

Production The Blacktip gas field started-up in 2009 and produced approximately 22 bcf/y in 2016 (approximately 11 kboe/d). Theproject is supported by a production platform and carried by a 108-kilometer long pipeline to an onshore treatment plant with a capacity of 42 bcf/y. Natural gas extracted from this field is sold under a 25-year contract to supply a power plant, signed with Australian society Power & Water Utility Co.


Block JPDA 03-13

Production The liquids and gas Bayu Undan field started-up in 2004 and produced 140 kboe/d (approximately 13 kboe/d net to Eni) in 2016. Liquid production is supported by three treatment platforms and an FSO unit. Production of natural gas is carried by a 500-kilometer long pipeline and is treated at the Darwin liquefaction plant which has a capacity of 3.6 mmtonnes/y of LNG (equivalent to approximately 177 bcf/y of feed gas). LNG is sold to Japanese power generation companies under long-term contracts.
