Eni sees 4%/year output rise through 2016

Eni SPA plans to increase production of crude oil and natural gas by more than 4%/year through 2016 and 3%/year during 2016-22.

In a presentation in London of the company’s 2013-16 strategic plan, Chief Executive Officer Paolo Scaroni said the production growth is based on a crude oil price of $90/bbl to 2016.

It will come mainly from development hubs in Russia (Yamal), the Barents Sea, Kazakhstan, Venezuela, the Far East, and the sub-Saharan region, Scaroni said.

Projects scheduled to come onstream during the plan period will add 700,000 boe/d of production by 2016—80% from giant projects and 40% from new development of existing fields.

Through 2022, the company expects reservoir management and production optimization to keep the average decline rate at about 4%/year.

Key downstream projects, Scaroni said, are conversion of Eni’s 80,000-b/d Venice refinery to produce biodiesel and start-up in the second half of this year of a 23,000-b/d hydroconversion plant, based on the company’s proprietary Eni Slurry Technology, at its 200,000-b/d Sannazzaro refinery (OGJ Online, Sept. 24, 2012; May 16, 2011).

With net debt at yearend 2012 nearly half its level of 2011, Eni will invest about €56.8 billion during 2013-16, up about €1.6 billion from the last plan period. Most of the increase relates to growth opportunities in exploration and production.

Eni expects to generate about €20 billion/year in cash and to raise more than €10 billion from divestments, including interests in Galp Energia and Snam.

The Future of US Refining

When Fri, Feb 6, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s Feb. 6, 2015, webcast will focus on the future of US refining as various forces this year conspire to pull the industry in different directions. Lower oil prices generally reduce feedstock costs, but they have also lowered refiners’ returns, as 2015 begins with refined products priced at lows not seen in years. If lower per-barrel crude prices dampen production of lighter crudes among shale plays, what will happen to refiners’ plans to export more barrels of lighter crudes? And as always, refiners will be affected by government regulations, particularly those that suppress demand, increase costs, or limit access to markets or supply.
