Exploration & Production

Eni has been operating in China since 1984 and activities are mainly concentrated in the offshore of the South China Sea for a total area of 7,141 square kilometers.

In 2018, Eni's average production of hydrocarbons amounted to 1 kboe / day, and 1 kbbl / day of oil and condensates. Eni's exploration and production activities in China are regulated by Production Sharing Agreement (PSA).

Gas & LNG Marketing and Power

Thanks to sizable reserves on Chinese soil and the CO2 emission reduction targets that the country is committed to pursuing, the gas market continues to hold the greatest interest and is set to grow more than any other.

Recently, Eni strengthened its relationship with China in this area through the Memorandum of Understanding, which to the benefit of both parties provides a number of different business opportunities both in China and internationally. Petrochina will consider the possibility of acquiring a stake in some of Eni’s assets, while Eni will offer the expertise in shale gas that it acquired in America.

The MoU provides for a collaboration focusing on advanced technologies, but above all on the exploitation of unconventional oil and gas resources.
