Letter to shareholders
Since the beginning of the oil downturn in 2014, Eni’s strategy has been refocused on three pillars: a successful exploration with low unit costs and a fast time to market; the deployment of the dual exploration model through the disposal of these successes anticipating the conversion in cash of resources as to reconcile organic growth and a robust balance sheet; a continuous focus on the cost base to adapt the business model to a low commodity price scenario both in upstream and in downstream businesses.
