Turkish blockade of ENI rig for Cyprus drilling continues

ANSA: A Turkish military operation to block a rig belonging to Italian energy giant ENI in the eastern Mediterranean continued on Monday. The Saipem 12000 rig was halted Saturday by a Turkish Navy ship while on its way to Block 6 to start activity under a license provided by Cyprus. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan expressed his opposition to ENI’s operations in meetings with President Sergio Mattarella and Premier Paolo Gentiloni during a recent visit to Italy.
