Eni has successfully completed the drilling of the exploration well "Baraka South East 1" in the Tunisian offshore, approximately 100 kilometre south-east of Tunisi.

The well, drilled at a water-depth of approximately 90 meters, reached a total depth of 2,300 meters. Production tests yielded a flow rate of 4,600 barrels per day of high-quality oil: the largest volume of crude oil ever produced through a vertical well, in the Tunisian offshore.

Evaluations and studies for the development and the production start-up of the field are currently underway. Production phase envisages the use of an FPSO (Floating Production Storage Offloading) (1).

Eni has been operating in Tunisia since 1961. Trough its subsidiary Agip Tunisia B.V. and the 50:50 joint operating company SITEP, Eni operates El Borma, the largest Tunisian oil field, discovered in the 1960's and still currently in production.
