Three blocks for Eni offshore Mexico

Italian oil company Eni has been granted three offshore blocks awarded by Mexico’s National Hydrocarbon Commission (CNH) as part of the Round 2.1. The Mexican oil regulator has received successful bids for ten blocks out of 15 on offer.

Eni’s new blocks are located in the Sureste Basin, in the Gulf of Mexico.

“This result boosts Eni’s presence in a market that only opened up to foreign investments in 2014, in line with the country’s Energy Reform, and which has huge growth potential,” Eni said.

As part of the bidding round, CNH offered blocks located in water depth ranging from 20 to 500 meters in the Sureste and Tampico Misantla Basins.

Eni will be Operator of Block 10 (Eni 100%), Block 7 (Eni 45%, Cairn 30%, Citla 25%) and Block 14 (Eni 60%, Citla 40%), with all of the licenses to be managed through Eni Mexico. The contract awards, which will be production sharing agreements, are subject to final approval by the authorities.

Eni already holds a 100% stake in Area 1 in the Sureste Basin, where, the company says, the exploration and appraisal campaign is successfully ongoing and a fast-track plan for the development of the Amoca field is being finalized, with plans for an early production phase.

“The new blocks are joined to Area 1 and, in the case of a successful exploration campaign, will allow Eni to build up a new core area of considerable size with significant operational synergies in the Country. Eni has been present in Mexico since 2006, and it established its wholly-owned subsidiary Eni Mexico in 2015,” the company added.
