Following the assessment of the disruptions in the trading environment due to Covid-19 pandemic, Eni confirms the long-term strategy presented at the end of February 2020 setting out the evolution of the Company in the next 30 years that will allow Eni to be a leader in the market supplying decarbonised products and actively contributing to the energy transition process, thus combining targets of returns and environmental sustainability. The market developments linked to the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic have made even more compelling the robustness of our strategic path and of our long-term choices. Having considered the prospect of the pandemic having an enduring impact on the global economy and the energy scenario, Eni has revised its view of market fundamentals to factor in certain emerging trends. In Particular, the Company has revised its forecast for hydrocarbon prices, which are the main driver of capital allocation decisions and of the recoverability assessment of the book values of Eni’s non-current assets.

The revised scenario adopted by Eni foresees a long-term price of the marker Brent of 60 $/barrel in 2023 real terms compared to the previous assumption of 70 $/barrel. For the years 2020-2022, Brent prices are expected respectively at 40, 48 and 55 $/barrel (compared to the previous assumptions of 45, 55 and 70 $/barrel).

The price of natural gas at the Italian spot market “PSV” is estimated at 5.5 $/mmBTU in real terms 2023 compared to the previous assumption of 7.8 $/mmBTU. For the years 2020-2022 it is expected respectively at 3.0, 4.6 e 5.2 $/mmBTU (previously 3.9, 5.1 and 7.3 $/mmBTU). Long-term refining margins in the Mediterranean area are confirmed slightly lower than 5 $/barrel.
