The Italian government holds a share of more than 30% in the company[7], which operated in more than 70 countries worldwide as of 2011.[8]

At the end of 2011 Eni had estimated net proven reserves of 7.09 billion barrels of oil equivalent (boe),[9] and in 2012 the company was producing 2.2 million barrels per day (bpd) globally.[10]

Company Report Highlights

In 2010 Eni reported a net profit of US$8.4 billion. Adjusted net profit saw a rise of 32% from a year ago, due to a recovery in the oil price environment. Production grew by 1.1% for the full year, thanks to delivery of 12 start-ups, particularly the Zubair field in Iraq, which contributed 40 kilo barrels of oil equivalent (kboe)/day of new production.

Highlights of recent exploration activities include a joint venture to develop the giant Junin 5 oilfield and the discovery in 2009 of the giant Perla discovery in Venezuela. Eni is leading the consortium in charge of redeveloping the Zubair field in Iraq over a 20 years period and holds a 32.8% share. 2010 also saw Eni divest its subsidiary Societa Padana Energia in Italy and sign a preliminary agreement with an affiliate of Petrobras for the divestment of its 100% interest in Gas Brasiliano Distribuidora.[11]
