Eni Urged to Explore Ambalat

Indonesia has urged Italy's major oil group Eni to explore for oil and gas in the Ambalat block. "We have asked Eni to commit for exploration in the Ambalat area to meet its contract," Achmad Luthfi, deputy chief of energy watchdog BP Migas told Reuters on Friday (9/3/07).

Eni operates the Ambalat block under a production sharing contract with the Indonesian government signed in 1999. "Ambalat is our area. Eni has to explore that area according to its contract commitments," he said.

Eni might be more enthusiatic about exploring ambalat if indonesia actually owned it.

this announcement from the government -- god knows where the story was sourced -- seems to be a deliberate attempt at provocation towards malaysia.

wait for the gunships ...

If I remember correctly, the last time someone went drilling there it became a major diplomatic incident with Malaysia, Brunei and Indonesia rattling sabres and gnashing teeth!
