Eni Resumes Exploration Onshore Libya

change text size

Italy's Eni announced Monday that it has restarted its onshore exploration activities in Libya by drilling well A1-108/4 in the Sirte Basin and some 185 miles south of Benghazi.

The well, operated by Eni North Africa, will be drilled to a total depth of 14,500 feet and will test a new geological play in EPSA IV 2008 Contract Area A.

Eni said that the exploration well is the first of an onshore drilling program set to continue into 2013, and it marks another step in resuming all of Eni's exploration and production activities in Libya.

Eni has already resumed production in Libya, being the first international company to do so in September 2011 at the Abu Attifel field. Libya saw widespread unrest last year as the previous Gaddafi regime was toppled in a civil war.

I think there is a mistake regarding the date, but I am not certain if it year only, or month and year. Please see "Eni has already resumed production in Libya, being the first international company to do so in September 2011..." Should that be 2012, specifically, September 2012? Rigzone, and Platts in general, is my most trusted source for energy related news. Thank you so much.

Thank you for the compliment, Ellie. We appreciate your input. Our staff is referring to operations that occured in September of 2011 at the Abu Attifel field. In 2012, Eni halted operations again and then recommenced.
