Exploration & Production

Eni has been present in Mexico since 2015, over an undeveloped acreage of 4,387 square kilometers (3,000 square kilometers net to Eni). Eni’s activities are concentrated in the Gulf of Mexico. Eni is operator of:

  • the offshore Area 1 license (Eni’s interest 100%) where the development activities of the Amoca, Miztón and Tecoalli discoveries progressed;
  • and the Area 10 (Eni’s interest 100%), the Area 14 (Eni’s interest 60%) and the Area 7 (Eni’s interest 45%) exploration licenses located in the Sureste basin.


In 2018, Eni signed the following agreements:

  • with the Lukoil company to swap interest in three exploration licenses. In particular, based on the agreement Eni will divest its 20% interest in Area 10 and Area 14 licenses and purchases a 40% interest in Area 12 license operated by Lukoil;
  • and to divest its 35% interest of the Area 1 to Qatar Petroleum Company.


The agreements are subject to approval by the relevant Authorities.

Furthermore, in 2018, Eni was awarded the operatorship with a 65% interest of the Area 24 offshore license and with 75% of the Area 28 license.

Exploration and production activities in Mexico are regulated by PSA and concession contract for the Area 24 license.


Development In July 2018, the plan of development for the Amoca, Mitzón and Tecoalli discoveries, located in the Area 1, was approved by the Mexican Authorithies. The phased approach for the development plan includes an early production startup

in 2019 through the installation of a production platform and the realization of facilities to connect the platform to an onshore existing treatment plant, with a production of 8 kbbl/d.

The full field development envisages a phased installation of three additional platforms and a FPSO, which will increase the production capacity up to 90 kbbl/d in 2021.

In 2018, certain initiatives to support local communities were implemented and held events with local stakeholders nearby to the license areas in development of Area 1. In addition, the first Local Development Plan was finalized, in agreement with the local Authorities, concerning the future programs to support the communities.
