PARIS: Italy’s Eni is focused on starting production at its giant offshore Zohr gas field in Egypt by end-2017, the company’s Chief Executive Officer Claudio Descalzi said on Friday.
Speaking at an International Energy Agency event in Paris, Descalzi said Eni was moving fast on the project although there were some challenges.
“We have already started the civil work. It is challenging but we are focused,” Descalzi said. (Reporting by Stephen Jewkes and Bate Felix; editing by Geert De Clercq)
