Oil companies in the world are gradually converting into energy ones and focusing on green development. This article presents Eni’s development strategy until 2050 and its action plan for 2020 – 2023, targeting to become a “zero carbon” company by 2050. For that purpose, several objectives and an action plan have been established, namely: (i) focus on gas production in the fossil energy sector; (ii) limitation on the number of conventional refineries and optimisation to enhance their efficiencies; (iii) gradual conversion of conventional refineries into bio-refineries; (iv) focus on production of specialised products and waste recycling; and (v) diversification and expansion of product chains, and promotion of the service sector. This is a good reference for PVN to prepare its development strategy in a context of fast changes in the global energy industry.
