Italian energy company Eni has exited Tunisia, according to local news agency Attounissia.
It has reported that the decision was made following a study conducted by the oil company.
Responding to MEED a spokesman for Eni refused to comment on the Attounissia story, saying that Eni does not comment on press speculation.
Eni had operated in Tunisia since 1960, when it signed an agreement with the government.
