Exploration & Production
Eni has been present in Cyprus since 2013 and detains interests in six licenses located in the EEZ of Cyprus (in Blocks 2, 3, 6, 8, 9 and 11), five of which are operated, for an undeveloped
In February 2018, exploration activities yielded positive results with the Calypso 1 gas discovery in the Block 6 (Eni operator with a 50% interest) in the offshore of Cyprus.
The first data collection marks a promising gas discovery and confirms the extension of the Zohr like play. The well, which was drilled in 2,074 meters of water depth reaching a final total depth of 3,827 meters, encountered an extended gas column in rocks of Miocene and Cretaceous age. The Cretaceous sequence has excellent reservoir characteristics. An intensive and detailed data collection (fluids and rock samples) has been executed on the well. Calypso 1 is a promising gas discovery and confirms the extension of the “Zohr like” play in the Cyprus Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ). Additional studies will be carried out to assess the range of the gas volumes in place and define further exploration and appraisal operations.
