Eni oil and gas exploration summary

Eni oil and gas exploration summary

Report summary

The last three years have been transformational for Eni. It has become a more integrated oil and gas company with long-term production growth, a re-structured mid- and downstream-sector, and an improved cost base. It has successfully built a high-margin portfolio of  long-life upstream projects. This has been possible because it has achieved outstanding exploration success over the last three years, and over the past decade as a whole has added 15 bnboe of conventional new resource organically. World-class exploration success in Mozambique, the eastern Mediterranean and West Africa has strengthened long-term production, and delivered a conventional reserves replacement performance second to none amongst the Majors. Eni will continue with its successful strategy of targeting material, conventional prospects with quick development times and low breakevens, near to existing fields in core areas. The frontier plays that will be explored will still be close to existing markets.
