Eni successfully appraises Merakes discovery offshore Kalimantan, Indonesia

Eni successfully drilled and tested Merakes 2, the first appraisal well of the Merakes discovery under the Production Sharing Contract (PSC) in East Sepinggan. The block is located in the prolific offshore Kutei Basin and the Merakes discovery is 35km from the Eni-operated Jangkrik field, which is expected to start producing through a Floating-Production Unit in the second quarter of this year. The well, drilled to a depth of 2,732m in 1,269m of water depth, encountered 17 meters of clean sands with very good petrophysical characteristics of Pliocene age confirming the the extension also in this new area of the 2014 discovery by the well Merakes 1. The production test, which was limited by surface facilities, recorded an excellent gas deliverability of the Merakes reservoir, and allowed to collect all the necessary data and information to perform all the studies for the future commercial exploitation of the discovery. Merakes discovery is currently estimated to have 2.0 Tcf of gas in place with further additional potential to be evaluated. The proximity of Merakes 2 discovery to the Jangkrik field will allow to maximizing the synergies with existing nearby infrastructures as well as to reduce costs and time of the execution of the future subsea development it confirms the success of Eni the “near field” exploration and appraisal strategy . Eni is the operator of East Sepinggan PSC with its affiliate Eni East Sepinggan Limited holding 85% Participating Interest while Pertamina Hulu Energy holds the remaining 15%. Eni has been operating in Indonesia since 2001and currently has a large portfolio of assets in exploration, production and development. In the Kutei Basin in early 2014, Eni started the development activities of the deep offshore Jangkrik gas field in the Muara Bakau PSC. Production activities are located in the Mahakam River delta, East Kalimantan through the participated Company VICO Ltd (Eni 50%, Saka 50%) operator of the Sanga Sanga PSC that provides an average equity production of 16,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.

Eni announces large gas discovery in Indonesia

Eni has made an important gas discovery at the Merakes exploration prospect, in the East Sepinggan Block, where Eni is operator with a 100% stake. The Block is located in the offshore East Kalimantan (Borneo), 170 kilometres south of the Bontang LNG Plant and 35 kilometres from the offshore Jangkrik field, also operated by Eni. The find was made through the Merakes 1 well which was drilled at a water depth of 1,372 metres and reached a total depth of 2,640 metres. The well encountered a significant accumulation of gas in the lower Pliocene clastic sequence. Merakes has crossed a hydrocarbon column of 60 metres in high quality sandstones. Merakes is the first exploration well drilled by Eni in the East Sepinggan Block, which was assigned to the Company in 2012 following an International Bid Round. Merakes potential has been preliminary estimated to be 1,3 Trillion cubic feet (Tcf) of gas in place. The discovery has further upside that will be assessed with a delineation campaign. Claudio Descalzi, Eni’s CEO said: "This new success further implements the Company’s growth strategy in the Pacific Basin where, in addition to its presence in Indonesia, Australia and China, Eni recently signed new exploration contracts in Vietnam, Myanmar and China. Merakes finding is a significant one as it strengthens our position as operator in Indonesia. Moreover thanks to its proximity to the Jangkrik field, which is currently under development, this new gas finding could supply in the future additional gas volumes to the Bontang LNG plant. This new achievement proves once more the effectiveness of Eni’s strategic approach to exploration, which is based on operating with elevated stakes in exploration phase to better valorize exploration success" Eni has been operating in Indonesia since 2001 and currently has a large portfolio of assets in exploration, production and development which have an increasing importance in contributing to the overall Company’s production growth. The company holds working interests in fourteen permits and is operator in ten of them. The exploration activities are located in acreage in the Tarakan and Kutei Basins, offshore Kalimantan, north of Sumatra, West Timor and West Papua. In the Kutei Basin in early 2014 Eni started the development activities of the deep offshore Jangkrik gas field in the Muara Bakau PSC. Eni also holds a participating interest in the development of significant gas reserves located in the Ganal and Rapak PSCs. Production activities are located in the Mahakam River Delta, East Kalimantan through the participated Company VICO Ltd (Eni 50%, BP 50%) operator of the Sanga Sanga PSC that provides an average equity production of 17,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.

Saipem has signed with Eni Muara Bakau B.V. a contract for the utilisation of the ‘Scarabeo 7’ which will be operating offshore Indonesia drilling a minimum of 12 wells; the project is estimated to be completed in first quarter 2017. The vessel will remain under contract with Eni until February 2018. ‘Scarabeo 7’ is a fifth generation semi-submersible drilling rig, capable of operating in water depths of up to 5,000 feet. Furthermore, in West Africa the contract for the ‘Scarabeo 3’ has been extended to March 2015. ‘Scarabeo 3’ is a second generation semi-submersible drilling rig, with capacity to operate in water depths of up to 1,500 feet. In addition, NDC has extended the contract for the jack-up rig ‘Perro Negro 2’ for 24 months, starting from January 2015, for activities in the Arabian Gulf. In Ecuador, EP Petroamazonas has extended by 10 months the charter of the jack-up rig ‘Ocean Spur’, operated (not owned) by Saipem until the end of the first quarter of 2015. Both these jack-up are rigs capable to operate in water depths of up to 300 feet.
