Eni received approval from Mexican oil and gas regulator La Comisión Nacional de Hidrocarburos for a USD-177 million work program to drill on three offshore blocks for which the company won a production-sharing contract in 2015 bidding. The program covers activities through 2017 at the shallow-water Amoca, Mizton, and Tecoalli fields in the southern Gulf of Mexico. The fields hold an estimated 196 million bbl in remaining oil resources.
