Eni will work with Indonesian upstream regulator SKKMigas to process and interpret seismic data owned by Indonesia using the Italian major’s proprietary technologies and facilities.
Eni said it will also provide its Green Data Center supercomputers in Ferrera Erbognone, Italy, as well as seismic imaging algorithms, as part of a memorandum of understanding signed with SKKMigas.
Eni is considered one of Indonesia’s main partners in the upstream sector following the start-up of gas production from the Eni-led Merakes project in April, and the positive results of the Maha-2 appraisal well in the West Ganal block off the coast of Indonesia, said the Italian company.
Eni has been operating in Indonesia since 2001, where it has a large portfolio of assets in the exploration, development and production phases.
The successful exploration campaign conducted by Eni in the deep water of East Kalimantan has already delivered the producing projects of Jangkrik and most recently Merakes.
Eni’s current equity production in Indonesia is approximately 80,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.
