Eni discovered hydrocarbons in an exploration well offshore Indonesia in the Jangkrik Northeast structure, located in the Muara Bakau block Kutei Basin, east of Kalimantan.

Eni stated that the Jangkrik Northeast discovery further confirms the high potential of the area. Jangkrik Northeast NFW, located about 43 miles (70 kilometers) from the coast of Indonesia, reached a depth of 11,919 feet (3,633 meters) in a water depth of 1,509 feet (460 meters).

The well contains more than 197 feet (60 meters) of net gas pay in excellent quality reservoir sands of Pliocene and Miocene age. During the production test, the well produced high-quality gas at a tubing constrained rate of 30.6 MMcf/d.
