Eni has successfully completed the production test on the Minsala Marine 1 NFW, located in the Marine XII Block offshore Congo, 35 kilometers from the shoreline and 12 kilometers from the recent Nené Marine discovery. During the production test the well delivered in natural flow in excess of 5,000 barrels of oil per day and 14 million standard cubic feet of gas per day from an opened section of 37 meters out of the 420 meters oil column identified in the discovery. The oil quality is 41 degrees API.

Eni preliminarily estimates the potential of Minsala Marine discovery to be about 1 billion barrels of oil equivalent in place, of which 80% is oil. The Company has scheduled an appraisal plan for the discovery and has begun studying the commercial development of its significant hydrocarbons reserves.

"The production test results has exceeded expectations and enables us to plan a fast commercial development of the important Minsala Marine find, similarly to what had been done at Nene’ Marine" said Claudio Descalzi, CEO of Eni.

In the last four years, Eni has been carrying out a targeted exploration programme in the pre-salt geological plays of West Africa’s shallow waters, achieving succesfull results. In this play, Eni has already discovered nearly 4 billion of barrels of equivalent oil in place, between Congo and Gabon. In the Marine XII permit specifically, there have been three discoveries: Minsala Marine, Litchjendily marine and Nené Marine. These are all located in conventional waters close to existing infrastructure and can therefore be brought into production shortly and at competitive costs.
