MILAN, Dec 5 (Reuters) - Italian oil and gas group Eni <ENI.MI> said on Wednesday its Chief Financial Officer Alessandro Bernini had resigned following news prosecutors were investigating Eni's oil services unit Saipem <SPMI.MI>.
Bernini was CFO of Saipem until 2008.
"While Alessandro Bernini considers that his actions were right and proper, it is his view that Eni's interests are better served by his resignation," the company said in a statement.
Saipem earlier said Milan prosecutors had said the alleged corruption regarding contracts in Algeria took place up through 2009.
