Congo (Brazzaville): Eni to explore Cuvette frontier block

Eni’s Eni Congo unit will operate the Ngolo block for state Ste. Nationale des Petroles du Congo in the frontier Cuvette basin 350 km northeast of Brazzaville.

Congo’s hydrocarbons ministry recently assigned the remote 16,000+ sq km block to SNPC. Eni will carry out remote sensing and geophysical surveys in exploring the basin’s Mesozoic and Paleozoic sedimentary geological sequences during the next 10 years.

Eni and SNPC have successfully explored jointly onshore and offshore Congo, where Eni has 110,000 b/d of equity oil production.
