Eni has signed an exploration and production sharing agreement with the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah، the Italian oil company’s latest expansion in the Middle East.

The agreement covers Block A offshore Ras Al Khaimah، one of the seven United Arab Emirates (UAE).

It was signed between Eni and the emirate’s RAK Petroleum Authority، Eni said in a statement on Thursday.

Block A is an area of 2،412 square kilometers. Eni will be the block’s operator، with a 90 percent participating interest، while RAK GAS will hold the remaining 10 percent.

Earlier this year، Eni pledged $3.3 billion to buy part of the world’s fourth-biggest refinery in the UAE، increasing its own refining capacity by more than a third.

In January the oil company of Sharjah، another emirate، awarded Eni concessions in three areas.

That same month Eni also signed an exploration and production agreement in neighboring Oman.
