According to Reuters, the CEO of Italian energy company, Eni – Claudio Descalzi – has stated that the company is ‘not far’ from selling a stake in its Mozambique gas project. Descalzi reportedly said that the company will aim to sell a stake in the project in 2016.
In the company’s 2016 – 2019 Strategic Plan, Descalzi said: “Our industry is facing a very complex challenge: reducing costs to fulfil short-term constraints while enhancing long-term value. Thanks to our successful strategy of restructuring and transforming Eni into an integrated oil and gas company, we are well positioned to meet this challenge through a competitive cost structure, an efficient operating model and a flexible asset portfolio. We have started a new cycle of profitable growth and have the potential to extract more value in the future.
“In 2015, we achieved 90% of the previous four-year plan disposal target. We have now increased our four-year target and will dispose of another €7 billion of assets by 2019, mainly through the dilution of our stakes in recent and material discoveries as part of our dual exploration model strategy.”
