Exploration & Production

Eni has been operating in Ecuador since 1988 and its service activities are regulated by a service contract which will expire in 2033. The extension of ten years was signed in December 2015. In 2015, Eni’s share of production amounted to 11,000 barrels a day. The activity is conducted in Block 10 (Eni 100%) located in the Amazon forest, over a developed area of 1,985 square kilometres. Production comes from the Villano oil field, started in 1999.
The field is exploited through a central facility connected via pipeline to storage facilities on the Pacific coast. Meanwhile, preliminary activities started up at the Villano Phase VI and Oglan projects.

Refining & Marketing

Eni has been operating in Ecuador since 1967, where it sells LPG for domestic and industrial use, ensuring territorial coverage to over two thousand dealers and customers, and directly managing four bottling plants. The staffing structure is made up, including clerical staff and workers, of 386 people. Eni Ecuador operates through Esain (the company responsible for domestic marketing), Esacontrol (which produces valves and regulators) and Tecnoesa (for the production and repair of LPG cylinders). The Ecuador group has a market share of about 40% and is the market leader in the distribution of LPG in the country.
