MILAN, Sept 18 (Reuters) - Italian oil and gas group Eni said on Thursday it had made an important oil discovery in Ecuador with an estimated 300 million barrels of crude in place.

The discovery was at the Oglan-2 exploration well located in Block 10, approximately 260 kilometers southeast of Quito, Eni said in a statement.
