• Decision made following study conducted by Eni

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.

The firm’s activities are focused offshore in the Mediterranean, near the coastal town of Hammamet, as well as onshore in the country’s south.

In 2013, Eni produced an average of 13,000 barrels a day (b/d) from its Tunisian assets.
