Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides met with ENI CEO, Claudio Descalzi in Rome and discussed energy-related issues.

In a post on Twitter on Monday the Foreign Affairs Ministry said that Kasoulides and Descalzi discussed energy-related issues with an emphasis on close cooperation with ENI and its ongoing activities in the Cyprus EEZ.

In May,  Italy’s Eni and TotalEnergies of France began drilling an exploration gas well off the coast of Cyprus.

The island’s energy ministry at the time said the Tungsten Explorer drillship had started drilling work on the ‘Cronos-1’ prospect.

Eni Cyprus and TotalEnergies EP Cyprus BV, the local units of the two energy majors, collaborate on the project. Eni is operator of the offshore area known as Block 6, with a 50% participation interest. Total has the remaining 50%.

In February 2018 they reported a gas discovery at the Calypso well, another area of the same block.
