Italy's Eni S.p.A. signed an agreement Thursday in Hanoi with Vietnam Oil and Gas Group (PetroVietnam) for the exploration of Block 122 in the Phu Khanh Basin, offshore Vietnam.

Block 122 covers an area of 2,664 square miles (6,900 square kilometers) in the Phu Khanh Basin in water depths of up to 6,561 feet (2,000 meters). The exploration period will last 7 years, subdivided in 2 phases.
