Eni, Petrochina Extend Footprint in Far East, Africa

Eni has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with CNPC/Petrochina. The Memorandum of Understanding sanctions a broad spectrum of possible business opportunities to the benefit of both parties in China and internationally.

In particular, the companies will study common opportunities to jointly expand their operations in conventional and unconventional hydrocarbons in Africa. Furthermore, Petrochina will evaluate the potential acquisition of a participation in certain assets owned by Eni. On its part, Eni will avail its expertise on shale gas gained in North America to evaluate opportunities in unconventional resources owned by Petrochina in China.

The parties will also cooperate in the field of advanced technology, with a special focus on the exploitation of unconventional oil and gas resources which may also be jointly developed and applied in one or more of the initiatives covered by this agreement.

This memorandum represents a step forward in Eni's strategy to strengthen its presence in the Far East, a very prospective and attractive region in terms of upstream opportunities and a favorable market.
