PODGORICA Feb 4 (Reuters) - The Montenegrin government awarded 30-year concessions for oil and gas exploration in the Adriatic sea to Italy's Eni and Russian No. 2 gas firm Novatek consortia, an economy ministry's spokeswoman said on Thursday.

The concessions for four blocks have been awarded in line with the terms of a 2014 tender, pending parliamentary approval, she said. (Reporting by Aleksandar Vasovic; Editing by Susan Thomas)
