Eni, TotalEnergies hit gas offshore Cyprus

Italy’s Eni and its partner France’s TotalEnergies have made a “significant” gas discovery at the Cronos-1 well, in Block 6, offshore Cyprus.

This discovery follows the Calypso-1 discovery made on the same block in 2018.

Eni Cyprus holds a 50 percent interest in the block with TotalEnergies as partner with a 50 percent stake as well.

According to a statement by Eni, preliminary estimates indicate about 2.5 TCF of gas in place, with significant additional upside that will be investigated by a further exploration well in the area.
