Eni highlights 2019 exploration track record with six offshore discoveries
Eni delivered six offshore discoveries as operator during the first nine months of the year.
According to the company’s latest results statement, three of the finds were in block 15/06 off Angola, bringing the number of new fields proven since exploration resumed on the block last year to five.
Eni estimates the cumulative resources at 2 Bbbl in place.
Offshore Vietnam, the company proved gas and condensates with a well on the Ken Bau permit in block 114.
In Ghana, Eni also discovered commercial gas and condensates in the CTP-Block 4, with in-place resources in the range 550-650 bcf of gas and 1,820 MMbbl. This can be tied into existing production infrastructure.
The company had a further gas success in the shallow-water Nour exploration license in the Egyptian sector of the Mediterranean Sea, and elsewhere participated in discoveries in the Gulf of Suez and the Norwegian North Sea.
