Italian energy major Eni is active again on the offshore drilling front in Vietnam in the vicinity of its significant Ken Bau gas and condensate discovery.

Vietnam-based sources said a new exploration well is being drilled in Block 115 using the jack-up drilling rig PV Drilling VI. The well is understood to be called Dan Tranh-1.

Eni, however, would not comment on its current or future drilling plans in Vietnam.
