Exploration & Production

Eni has been present in Iraq since 2009 and is performing development activities over a developed acreage of 1,074 square kilometres (446 square kilometres net to Eni).  Development and production activities in Iraq are regulated by Technical Service Contract.  

At the beginning of March 2016, three new generation plants for the oil, gas and water treatment (Initial Production Facilities – IPF) started. Those plants together with existing restructured and modernized facilities increased oil and natural gas treatment capacity of Zubair field (Eni’s interest 41.6%) to approximately 650 kbbl/d and will ensure the maximization of the associated gas utilization. In addition, these new facilities have also a water re-injection capacity of approximately 300 kbbl/d that will boost the Zubair’s hydrocarbons production and will achieve production plateau.

The first stage of development activities (Rehabilitation Plan) of Zubair field was completed with the start-up of these new facilities. Ongoing development activities concerned an additional development phase (Enhanced Redevelopment Plan) of the Zubair field, to achieve a production plateau of 700 kbbl/d and will ensure the application of associated gas to power generation.
