    Paolo Scaroni, Chief Executive Officer, commented:
    “In the first half of 2012, Eni delivered excellent results with strong production growth, supported by the recovery in Libyan output. We have achieved unprecedented exploration success with major new discoveries and secured promising opportunities in high potential areas. Gas & Power and Refining & Marketing have contained the impact of widespread market weakness. Through the divestment of our stakes in Snam and Galp our balance sheet will be transformed, securing our capacity to finance robust long-term growth in any market environment. Our confidence in Eni’s outlook underpins my proposal of an interim dividend of €0.54 per share to Eni’s Board on September 20.”
    On the same occasion of reviewing this press release, the Board has approved the interim consolidated report as of June 30, 2012, which has been prepared in accordance to Italian listing standards as per article 154-ter of the Code for securities and exchanges (Testo Unico della Finanza).
    The document was immediately submitted to the Company’s external auditor. Publication of the interim consolidated report is scheduled within the first half of August 2012 alongside completion of the auditor’s review.
