Eni has been present in China since 1984. In 2013, Eni’s production amounted to 8 kboe/d. Activities are located in the South China Sea over a developed and undeveloped acreage of 5,206 square kilometers (5,149 square kilometers net to Eni).
In March 2013, Eni and CNPC signed a Joint Study Agreement for the development of the Rongchangbei shale gas block, which covers about 2,000 square kilometers located in the Sichuan Basin, in China.
To date, this area is the most promising in the Country.
Exploration and production activities in China are regulated by PSAs.
Production Hydrocarbons were produced from the offshore Blocks 16/08 and 16/19 through eight platforms connected to an FPSO. Natural gas production from the HZ21-1 field was delivered through a sealine to the Zhuhai Terminal and sold to the Chinese National Oil Co CNOOC. Oil was mainly produced from the HZ25-4 field (Eni’s interest 49%). Activity was operated by the CACT-OG Operating Group (Eni’s interest 16.33%).
In December 2013, the Block 16/08 PSC is relinquished.
Eni has been present in Indonesia since 2001. In 2013, Eni’s production amounted to 16 kboe/d, mainly gas. Activities are concentrated in the Eastern offshore and onshore East Kalimantan, offshore Sumatra island, and offshore/onshore areas of West Timor and West Papua, over a developed and undeveloped acreage of 28,999 square kilometers (19.209 square kilometers net to Eni) in 13 Blocks.
Exploration and production activities in Indonesia are regulated by PSAs.
In the medium term, management expects to increase Eni’s production through ongoing development activities.
Production Production consists mainly of gas and derives from the Sanga Sanga permit (Eni’s interest 37.8%) with seven production fields. This gas is treated at the Bontang liquefaction plant, one of the largest in the world. Liquefied gas is exported to the Japanese, South Korean and Taiwanese markets.
Development Development activities progressed at the operated Jangkrik (Eni’s interest 55%) and Jau (Eni’s interest 85%) offshore fields. The Jangkrik project includes linkage of production wells to a Floating Production Unit for gas and condensate treatment and the construction of a transportation facility to the Bontang liquefaction plant. Start-up is expected in 2017 with a production peak of 80 kboe/d (42 kboe/d net to Eni) in 2018. The Jau project provides for the drilling of production wells and the linkage to onshore plants via pipeline. Start-up is expected in 2017.
Development activities are underway at the Indonesia Deepwater Development project (Eni’s interest 20%), located in the East Kalimantan, to ensure gas supplies to the Bontang plant. The project initially provides for the linkage of the Bangka field to existing production facilities, with start-up expected in 2016. Then the project also provides for the integrated development of the first Hub including the Gendalo, Gandang, Maha fields and the second Hub of the Gehem field. Start up is expected in 2018.
Eni has been present in Iraq since 2009 and is performing development activities over a developed acreage of 1,074 square kilometers (446 square kilometers net to Eni). Production comes from Zubair oil field (Eni’s interest 41.6%) with a production of 22 kbbl/d net to Eni in 2013.
Development and production activities in Iraq are regulated by Technical Service Contract.
In July 2013, Eni signed with the national oil company South Oil Company and the Iraqi Ministry of Oil an amendment to the technical service contract for the development of the Zubair oil field. The agreement includes a new target plateau at 850 kbbl/d and extends the expiring date of service contract for an additional five years, until 2035.
The Rural Support Project to support farms and communities in the area of Zubair field was completed during the year. The program in accordance with the Zubair Agricoltural Department, Farmers Association and with the monitoring of Local Authorities, involved 165 farms during 2012-2013 agricultural season.
Eni has been present in Pakistan since 2000. In 2013, Eni’s production amounted to 52 kboe/d mainly of gas. Activities are located mainly onshore covering a developed and undeveloped acreage of 28,121 square kilometers (10,335 square kilometers net to Eni).
Exploration and production activities in Pakistan are regulated by concessions (onshore) and PSAs (offshore).
Production Eni’s main permits in the Country are Bhit/Bhadra (Eni operator with a 40% interest), Sawan (Eni’s interest 23.68%) and Zamzama (Eni’s interest 17.75%), which in 2013 accounted for 75% of Eni’s production in Pakistan.
Development Development activities progressed to mantain the current production plateau of the area.
Exploration Exploration activities yielded positive results with the onshore gas discovery of Lundali 1 in the Sukhpur concession (Eni operator with a 45% interest) with an expected production level of more than 3 kboe/d and with the gas discovery of Bhadra North-2.
Eni started its activities in Turkmenistan with the purchase of the British company Burren Energy plc in 2008. Activities are focused in the Western part of the Country over a developed area of 200 square kilometers net to Eni, splitted into four development areas. In 2013, Eni’s production amounted to 10 kboe/d.
Exploration and production activities in Turkmenistan are regulated by PSAs.
Production Eni is operator of the Nebit Dag producing Block (with a 100% interest). Production derives mainly from the Burun oilfield. Oil production is shipped to the Turkmenbashi refinery plant. Eni receives, by means of a swap with the Turkmen Authorities, an equivalent amount of oil at the Okarem terminal, close to the South coast of the Caspian Sea. Eni’s entitlement is sold FOB. Associated natural gas is used for own consumption and gas lift system. The remaining amount is delivered to Turkmenneft, via national grid.
Development Development activities progressed to support production plateau of the area.
