Eni Shuts Down Oil Center at Major Italy Field After Local Order

Italian oil major Eni said on 18 April it had decided to temporarily shut down a treatment plant serving its biggest domestic oil field in southern Italy to meet a local order.

Closure of the oil center in the Val d’Agri field follows a request by the regional government of Basilicata to halt operations because it said there were leaks from storage tanks at the site.

In a note on Saturday, the regional government said it had repeatedly asked Eni to meet a series of conditions it had laid down to stop contamination of the soil by the leaks.

Eni said on 18 April it had decided to shut down the plant to respect the position of the region but added it had met all conditions set out by the regional authorities.
