Italian energy group Eni said Monday it had acquired the oil production operations in the Gulf of Mexico of the US firm Dominion Resources for 4.757 billion euros (6.5 billion dollars).
The assets acquired by Eni include production, development and exploration structures.
Eni said that with the acquisition its oilfield output should come to an average of 75,000 oil-equivalent barrels per day between 2007 and 2010.
