Company Developments

According to the Eni 2014 – 2017 Strategic Plan:

“Leveraging on the opportunities created by industry-leading exploration successes, Eni will grow production by an average of 3% a year between 2014 and 2017, and 4% a year from 2017 to 2023. Growth will be driven by 26 projects, which will contribute about 500,000 boed by 2017.

Eni assumes that production in Libya and Nigeria will remain depressed in the near-term, and will gradually improve from 2015 onwards. Operating cash flow growth will outstrip volume growth, with a CAGR of 9% at constant oil prices.

Over the next four years, Eni will continue to focus on exploration. Since 2008, it has discovered 9.5bn boe of resources, or 2.5 times cumulated production in the period. Key areas for Eni’s exploration are Mozambique and Kenya in East Africa, Congo, Angola and Gabon in West Africa, the Pacific basin, the Barents sea and Cyprus.”
