TotalEnergies, Sonatrach Sign Agreements to Enhance Natural Gas Cooperation

TotalEnergies announced that it has signed a series of agreements to boost the cooperation between the two companies in the production of natural gas, the delivery of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to Europe, and the development of renewables in Algeria.

The first agreement states that the two parties will convert the production contracts for the Tin Fouyé Tabankort II (TFTII) and Tin Fouyé Tabankort Sud (TFT sud) fields in southern Algeria (Sonatrach 51%, TotalEnergies 49%) to the framework established by the new Algerian Petroleum Law enacted on December 11, 2019. These are the first conversions of contracts in Algeria under the regime of the new Petroleum Law.

It will help in increasing the gas production of the two fields which are expected to produce more than 100,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day by 2026 (boe/d) versus a level of around 60,000 boe/d in 2022.The agreement is subject to the approval of the Algerian authorities.

Under a second agreement, Sonatrach and TotalEnergies have extended their deliveries of 2 million tons per day of LNG to TotalEnergies until the year 2024.

While the third agreement stated that TotalEnergies and Sonatrach have agreed to examine the development of projects to produce renewable energy in Algeria.

On this occasion, Patrick Pouyanné, Chairman and CEO of TotalEnergies said “I am delighted to sign these new agreements with our strategic partner Sonatrach. They testify to TotalEnergies’ close ties to Algeria, whose resources contribute directly to Europe’s energy supply and security. We are also happy to support Algeria in the energy transition, by examining and developing its huge potential for renewables production.”

The agreements were signed by Patrick Pouyanné, Chairman and CEO of TotalEnergies, and Toufik Hakkar, Chief Executive Officer of Sonatrach,.
