The sister platform, Annamaria B, located in the Italian waters, is currently in the final authorization phase for production start up.
The development of Annamaria field, which crosses the border between Italy and Croatia in the Adriatic sea, is regulated by a comprehensive agreement: “Annamaria Integrated Development and Operating Agreement‘ (AIDOA) officially approved by the Italian and Croatian governments.
Annamaria field will produce about 1.6 million of standard cubic meter per day in full capacity, thus significantly contributing to the need of gas for both Croatia and Italy.

Eni started its operations in Croatia in 1996 through the creation of the INAgip joint operating company. Current production of INAgip is more than 5 million of standard cubic meters per day, out of which Annamaria is contributing approximately 0.8 million of standard cubic meters per day.
