Algeria: Gassi Touil gas field enters production

Issue 266 - 26 Nov 2013 | 1 minute read
Algerian state energy company Sonatrach has announced the start of production from the Gassi Touil gas reserve in the south-eastern Illizi province. The field has been developed by Sonatrach and services companies, after a much-vaunted integrated liquefied natural gas (LNG) contract awarded in 2004 to Spanish firms Repsol and Gas Natural was terminated in 2007. Reports earlier this year suggested that Sonatrach planned to inaugurate the Gassi Touil integrated LNG project in July, allowing exports from the new 3.6bcm/yr Arzew (GL3Z) liquefaction train to start in late September (AE 255/20).
