The Algerian state-owned, Sonatrach, declared that the Tiguentourine gas plant will resume full production with the start of its third train before the end of 2016, after a militant attack halted operations in the facility during 2013, reported Reuters.
The statement clarified that the third train at the Tiguentourine gas plant will come online up in December 2016 to produce 6mcm/d of gas. The current production at the plant is estimated at 16mcm. The facility is operated by Sonatrach, BP, and Statoil. The company also added that the production from the CAFC perimeter at the Menzel Ledjmet field, operated jointly by Sonatrach and Italy’s Eni, will be an estimated 10,000b/d, according to London South East.
Earlier Egypt Oil&Gas wrote that Algeria’s Tiguentourine gas plant, located 1,600km south east of the capital city Algiers, was expected to be back in service, according to Director General of the gas complex, Kamel Aouaes. The plant, which is operated by the Algerian state energy firm Sonatrach, BP and Statoil, will come online for the first time since a deadly militant attack in 2013 has taken place.
