We are present in Turkmenistan with activities related to the Exploration & Production sector in the Balkanabat onshore block, where production is essentially provided by the Burun oil reservoir. The development activities initiated by Eni include interventions to counter the production decline of reservoirs and the completion of the first phase of the modernisation programme for the existing treatment facilities for the oil from the reservoir, in order to increase capacity and improve the conditions of safety, efficiency and environmental protection.

Exploration & Production

Eni started its activities in Turkmenistan with the purchase of the British company Burren Energy plc in 2008. Activities are focused on the onshore Nebit Dag Area in the Western part of the country, over a developed acreage of 200 square kilometers (180 square kilometers net to Eni) in four areas. In 2015, Eni’s production

averaged 11 kboe/d. Exploration and production activities are regulated by PSAs.

Production Production derives mainly from the Burun oil field. Oil production is shipped to the Turkmenbashi refinery plant. Eni receives, by means of a swap arrangement with the Turkmen Authorities, an equivalent amount of oil at the Okarem terminal, close to the South coast of the Caspian Sea. Eni’s entitlement is sold FOB. Associated natural gas is used for own consumption and gas lift system. The remaining amount is delivered to the national oil company Turkmenneft, via national grid.

Development Development activities include: 
  - a program to mitigate the natural field production decline;
  - projects in order to improve safety, efficiency and environment performance.
