Eni Starts Up Gas Production in Adriatic Sea

Eni commenced production from the Annamaria B gas platform, which is flowing at a rate of 800,000 cm/d, but is expected to reach about 1.2 MMcm/d. The confirmed and estimated reserves of the field comprise 10 Bcm. Gas is transported via an underwater pipeline to the Fano treatment plant, approximately 43 miles (70 kilometers) away, and is fed into the national distribution network. The Annamaria field lies in 197 feet (60 meters) of water and extends between Italy and Croatia, roughly 37 miles (60 kilometers) from the coast. Annamaria is the first cross-border field producing in the Adriatic Sea, and is considered the most important gas field to come onstream since 1998. A twin platform, Annamaria A, is also located on the field and is producing roughly 800,000 cm/d. Eni is the operator of the field, owning a 90% interest.
