An Eni-led joint venture in Libya has launched a tender process to secure two offshore rigs for a pair of development drilling campaigns calling for more than 30 wells.

Mellitah Oil & Gas — the Italian major’s partnership with Libya’s state-owned National Oil Corporation — operates the multi-billion-dollar Structures A&E project, which is expected to produce 760 million cubic feet per day of gas, 30,000 barrels per day of liquids, and pipe carbon dioxide to an onshore storage facility.
