The memorandum of understanding defines the framework for further co-operation in the processing and interpretation of seismic data owned by Indonesia by utilising Eni’s proprietary technologies and facilities, as well as seismic imaging algorithms.

Eni said its agreement with SKK Migas “represents a further international recognition for its technological resources”, in particular the computing and processing capabilities of its Green Data Center in Ferrera Erbognone, where Eni's HPC4 and HPC5 supercomputers are located.

Appraisal success

Eni's recent upstream activities in Indonesia include bringing on stream the Merakes field in April and the successful Maha-2 appraisal well on the West Ganal production sharing contract earlier this month.

The company has been operating in Indonesia since 2001, where it has a large portfolio of assets in the exploration, development and production phases including the producing deep-water Jangkrik and Merakes gas fields offshore East Kalimantan.
