Eni has been present in Mexico since 2015. Eni is operator of the offshore Area 1 (Eni’s interest 100%) over a undeveloped acreage of 1,657 square kilometers kilometers (1,146 square kilometers net to Eni) where development activities progress in the Amoca, Miztón and Tecoalli discoveries, located in the shallow waters of the Gulf of
Mexico, regulated by PSA.
In June 2017, Eni was awarded the operatorship of the Block 10 (Eni’s interest 100%), the Block 14 (Eni’s interest 60%) and the Block 7 (Eni’s interest 45%) located in the Sureste basin. Furthermore, in February 2018, Eni was awarded a 65% interest and the operatorship of the Block 24. The new blocks are closed to Area 1 block and, in the case of a successful exploration campaign they will allow significant operational synergies.
In March 2018, Eni was awarded the operatorship of the Block 28 (Eni’s interest 75%), located in Cuenca Salina Basin, in offshore Mexico. The contract award is subject to approval from the Authorities.
Exploration activities yielded positive results in the Area 1 block with the drilling of:
- the Amoca-2 and Amoca-3 appraisal oil wells;
- the first delineation well of the Miztón oil discovery;
- the Tecoalli 2 appraisal oil well.
Exploration successes and the reservoir review of the Amoca and Miztón discoveries resulted in a rise in estimated hydrocarbons in place of the block to 2 billion boe, of which approximately 90% oil. Eni submitted an integrated development plan all of three discoveries located in the Area 1 block to the relevant Authorities. Production start-up is expected in 2019.
