The Gassi Touil gas treatment plant, located in the province of Ouargla (800 km south of Algiers), was commissioned Monday, allowing Algeria to have an additional processing capacity of 3.6 billion cubic meters per year.
Gassi Touil plant, which is worth DZD 107 billon, will henceforth produce a daily volume of 12 million cubic meters starting from 44 wells out of the 52 planned ones.
Besides, this plant allows an operation over a period of 12-15 years with the provided production conditions, an executive officer of Sonatrach sais during the inauguration ceremony held in presence of the Minister of Energy and Mines Youcef Yousfi and CEO of Sonatrach, Abdelhamid Zerguine.
The construction works of the plant had been launched in late 2009 by Sonatrach in partnership with the Japanese firm JGC (Japenese Gas Company).
