Eni has made an important gas finding in the Merakes exploration prospect, in the East Sepinggan Block, where Eni is operator with a 100% stake. The Block is located in the offshore East Kalimantan (Borneo), 170 kilometres south of the Bontang LNG Plant and 35 kilometres from the offshore Jangkrik field, also operated by Eni.

The finding was made through the Merakes 1 well which was drilled at a water depth of 1,372 metres and reached a total depth of 2,640 metres. The well encountered a significant accumulation of gas in the lower Pliocene clastic sequence. Merakes has crossed a hydrocarbon column of 60 metres in high quality sandstones.

Merakes is the first exploration well drilled by Eni in the East Sepinggan Block, which was assigned to the Company in 2012 following an International Bid Round. Merakes finding potential has been preliminary estimated to be 1,3 Trillion cubic feet (Tcf) of gas in place. The finding has further upside that will be assessed with a delineation campaign.
