Sonatrach and Anadarko Petroleum Corporation, on behalf of the El Merk partners, announced the award of an initial engineering and detailed design contract for their proposed El Merk development in Algeria to Brown & Root -Condor. The El Merk development, located in Block 208, 90 kilometres (56 miles) south of the Sonatrach/Anadarko-operated Hassi Berkine South (HBNS) facility, will include a central processing facility, export pipelines and field infrastructure. The entire El Merk development will be operated by the Sonatrach-Anadarko Association.

The facility will serve as a production hub for the region, processing hydrocarbons from Block 208 (operated by the Sonatrach/Anadarko Association), Block 212 (operated by the Sonatrach/ Eni Association), the unitized El Merk field (located on a portion of both Block 208 and Sonatrach/Burlington-operated Block 405a), and liquid-rich gas from HBNS.

Hydrocarbons from the four fields discovered by the Sonatrach/Anadarko Association in Block 208 -- El Merk North, El Merk East, El Merk and El Kheit Et Tesseka -- together with hydrocarbons from the other areas, will be produced through oil and natural gas liquid processing facilities with a combined capacity of 108,000 barrels of oil per day, 55,000 barrels of condensate per day and 75,000 barrels of LPG per day.

Design work has already begun and successful completion of this initial engineering and design study will pave the way for formulation of the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract, which is expected to be finalized in 2006.
