    Achieving No Net Loss of biodiversity: Agip Oil Ecuador case study

    October 2012

    The Ecuadorian Amazon is one of the most sensitive natural environments where eni operates. Since 2000, eni’s subsidiary Agip Oil Ecuador (AOE) has been operating the Villano field in Block 10, located in an almost untouched area of forest. This case study explains the Villano Biodiversity (VBD) Project, which demonstrated that AOE’s operations are substantially neutral from an ecological point of view, and that the restoration of the impacts of oil activities is feasible, effective and relatively swift. This means that the operating model of avoid and minimise impacts adopted by AOE is effective in achieving No Net Loss of biodiversity.
