Energy company Eni reports Q4 loss due to disruptions in Libya, Nigeria, weak Italian sales

MILAN - Italian oil and gas company Eni posted a fourth-quarter loss of 611 million euros ($832 million) due to ongoing difficulties in its Libya and Nigerian operations and weak sales in its main Italian market.

The quarterly losses compared with a profit of 1.52 billion euros in the same period a year earlier.

Eni said Thursday that its full-year profits dropped 40 per cent to 4.4 billion euros from 7.325 billion euros.

Oil and gas production for the year was down 5 per cent from 2012, due largely to power struggles in Libya, where it is the largest producer, interrupting production. Eni said production increases in Algeria and Egypt partially offset halts elsewhere.

The company said it is raising the dividend to 1.10 euros a share from 1.08 euros a share.
