Eni, the international oil and gas company, released its group results for the first quarter of 2013 (unaudited).

Financial Highlights
• Adjusted operating profit: €3.79 billion, down 36% excluding Snam contribution to the first quarter of 2012 3;
Adjusted net profit: €1.43 billion, down 39% excluding Snam contribution to the first quarter of 2012 3;
• Cash flow: €2.80 billion;
• Leverage: down to 0.24.

Operational Highlights

• Oil and natural gas production: down 4.9% to 1.6 mmboe/d affected by one-offs in Nigeria, Libya and the U.K.;
• Natural gas sales: down 1.3% to 30.2 billion cubic meters due to the disposal of Galp;
• Signed an agreement with CNPC to sell 28.57% of the share capital of Eni East Africa, which currently owns a 70% interest in Area 4 in Mozambique, at the agreed price of $4.21 billion in cash; access to a promising shale gas block in China;
• Acquired exploration licenses in areas of high potential in Timor Leste, Cyprus, Egypt and the Gulf of Mexico;
• Versalis entered partnership agreements with Genomatica, Pirelli and Yulex targeting continuing expansion in the bio-technologies and the bio-ruber segment.

Paolo Scaroni, Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We confirm our growth and profitability targets for the full year 2013, in spite of a slower first quarter. This was negatively impacted by lower oil and gas production due to contingencies as well as to the current downturn in the gas market. Our E&P Division confirms its production growth targets for 2013 driven by continuing progress in developing ongoing projects. The G&P Division will benefit from the renegotiation of supply contracts which will mitigate the impact of a still very negative market. The R&M Division and Versalis, which both delivered strong improvements over the same period a year ago, will continue with their respective programs to drive a recovery in profitability.”
