Our expertise 

From Eni’s global contractor to a market player.

We are Eni's environmental company

We are Eni's environmental company and work according to the principles of the circular economy, to give new life to land, water and waste from industrial and reclamation activities, through sustainable remediation and revaluation projects in Italy and abroad. 

We now own about 3,800 hectares of land in Italy, about 65% of which is located in Sites of National Priority. Since 2003, we have spent 3,7 billion euros on environmental projects, over 80% of which has been spent on interventions in sites transferred by law or acquired through mergers, as part of the historic industrial rescue operations that Eni had to carry out when it was a state-owned company in the 1980s and 1990s. Thanks to the know-how we have acquired over the years, we have become a global environmental contractor for all of Eni's business lines, including upstream, refining, chemicals and commercial activities. Since 2016, we are also carrying out remediation activities at decommissioned and operating service stations in Italy on behalf of Green Traditional Refining & Marketing Eni, in addition to soil and groundwater remediation following pipeline breaches.


Eni Rewind works to give new life to industrial land, water and waste

From service company to market player

Our continuous growth and increasingly robust skills have enabled us to enter the external market, with a view to gradually transforming ourselves from an Eni service company into a market operator that provides environmental services for third parties. This includes working with Acciaierie d'Italia to design the remediation of the former Ilva site in Taranto and with Edison for the remediation of a ex industrial area in the Site of National Priority in Mantua. We believe that the experience we have gained can be useful for the sustainable development of the country. As Eni's environmental company, we want to make an active contribution to this with our wealth of knowledge, technologies and a systemic vision in which all stakeholders interact to pursue a common goal.

Our know-how is available to the countries where Eni operate

In 2018, we expanded our activities beyond national borders and made our environmental know-how available to Eni's companies around the world, also with a view to supporting local development and cooperation. After an initial analysis of the potential needs of Upstream and its subsidiaries, especially in the fields of environmental engineering, water treatment and soil remediation, we proposed and launched projects in several countries around the world, from Africa to the Middle East and Asia. Our aim is to export the expertise we have acquired in Italy, in part through extensive training and knowledge sharing activities, while expanding our experience in managing complex projects. We are currently working alongside our foreign subsidiaries in Iraq, Tunisia, Nigeria, Egypt, Angola and Kazakhstan. A partnership has also been set up in Bahrain.


Eni has been present in the country since 2009 through its subsidiary Eni Iraq BV, which is developing the Zubair oil field in the Basra area. In 2018, Eni Rewind presented two projects resulting from the collaboration with Eni Iraq, which involve the development of environmental initiatives for the Basra area. The first involves the construction of water purification plants in Al-Buradeja and Al-Bardjazia, which will improve the quality of water for about 150,000 people. The company was also entrusted with the design of a circular economy project for urban wastewater treatment and the subsequent re-injection into the Zubair field from the Hamdan plant.


Eni has been present in Tunisia since 1961 and the first consignment of crude oil arrived from the country in 1966. Eni Rewind now works alongside Eni Tunisia to offer innovative, sustainable engineering support for the recovery and improvement of water resources. A new plant for the treatment of production water and its re-injection into the water table was developed for the subsidiary, in synergy with EniProgetti. 


Eni has been present in Nigeria since 1962, when the Nigerian Agip Oil Company (NAOC) was formed. Eni Rewind works alongside the subsidiary to plan and manage environmental activities related to soil remediation and production water treatment at the Brass terminal, south of Port Harcourt, where crude oil is collected and stored before being shipped by sea.


Eni's activities in Egypt began in 1954 and focus on the development of offshore and onshore hydrocarbon projects. Among the most recent exploration activities, the giant Zohr field has contributed to making the country self-sufficient in gas. Eni Rewind supports the subsidiary in identifying circular projects for water valorisation.


In January 2021, Eni Rewind and the National Oil and Gas Authority of the Kingdom of Bahrain signed a Memorandum of Understanding aimed at promoting joint initiatives for the efficient recovery and management of water, soil and waste in the country, in line with the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN 2030 Agenda. Eni Rewind will bring its extensive environmental expertise to the partnership, obtained through numerous complex remediation and waste management projects.


Eni has been present in Angola since 1980 and is now involved in several production blocks. Its main asset is Block 15/06, which it operates (36.84% share). Alongside the extraction activities, there are also numerous initiatives concerning access to water resources and health promotion. In collaboration with EniProgetti, Eni Rewind launched the circular project for the development of a new plant for the treatment, recovery and reuse of production water at the Northern Gas Complex.


Eni was among the first international energy companies to enter Kazakhstan. It co-operates the Karachaganak production field. It also holds a 16.81% stake in the North Caspian Operating Company consortium through its subsidiary Agip Caspian Sea, which operates the giant Kashagan oil and gas field, located 80km offshore from the city of Atyrau. Eni Rewind supports the NCOC consortium with projects for the treatment and valorisation of water resources.


On the Job Training is an environmental training initiative that Eni Rewind organised in collaboration with Upstream and Eni Corporate University, involving eight colleagues from different foreign subsidiaries in classroom, laboratory and field activities. It was a unique experience that gave participants a close-up view of the most advanced remediation technologies and water and waste management processes. The experience also included site visits, as well as various regulatory aspects and relations with institutions and local authorities.
