In detail:

  • the main activities in the onshore and offshore Upstream sector conducted by Eni in Indonesia
  • Eni offices and contacts in Indonesia


Eni has been present in Indonesia since 2001. In 2017, Eni’s production mainly composed of gas, amounted to 41 kboe/d.

Activities are concentrated in the Eastern offshore and onshore of East Kalimantan, offshore Sumatra, and offshore and onshore of West Timor and West Papua, over a developed and undeveloped acreage of 31,841 square kilometers (22,889 square kilometers net to Eni); in total, Eni holds interests in 14 blocks.

Exploration and production activities in Indonesia are regulated by PSAs.


Production derives from the Sanga Sanga permit (Eni’s interest 37.8%) and Muara Bakau block (Eni’s interest 55%) where Jangkrik field started-up in 2017.

Production started up earlier than scheduled in the Jangkrik gas project by means of ten offshore wells linked to the Floating Production Unit (FPU) with a production of approximately 650 mmcf/d (corresponding to 120 kboe/d).

Natural gas production is processed by the FPU and then delivered by pipeline to the onshore plant, which is linked to the East Kalimantan transport system to feed Bontang liquefaction plant. The LNG is sold under long-term contracts, partly to state company Pertamina and to Eni, which will sell over 11 million tonnes for 15 years as part of the supply agreement signed with the Pakistan LNG state company.

In Sanga Sanga permit were put into production seven fields. This gas is treated at the Bontang liquefaction plant. Liquefied gas is exported to the Japanese, South Korean and Taiwanese markets.

In April 2018, development plan of the Merakes gas field (Eni operator with a 75% interest) off Indonesia approved by the relevant authorities, leveraging synergies with nearby Jangkrik producing field.

Ongoing initiatives progressed in the field of environmental protection, health care and educational system to support local communities located in the operated areas of the Eastern Kalimantan, Papua and North Sumatra.


Exploration activities yielded positive results with the Merakes 2 appraisal well confirming the mineral potential of the Merakes gas discovery in the western area of the East Sepinggan block (Eni operator with an 85% interest). The discovery, nearby the Jangkrik project block, will leverage on the synergies with existing facilities to reduce costs and time of the execution of the subsea development and confirms the success of Eni’s near-field exploration and appraisal strategy.

In May 2018, Eni was awarded a 100% interest in the East Ganal deep offshore exploration block in the Kutei basin.
