The operations of shale gas drilling and compression conducted in the Ahnet pilot well located in In Salah, 1300 km south of Algiers were completed this week, Sonatrach’s Interim CEO Said Sahnoun told APS Thursday.

''We have completed this week the drilling and the compression, and we are going to test this pilot well in order to verify some aspects that determine its capacities for commercial exploitation,'' he said on the sidelines of the Algerian-British Forum on Trade and Investment in London.

The shale gas exploitation represents "a field of development for Sonatrach," adding that this unconventional gas "is a potential of growth not to be neglected.

According to him, "this will allow Sonatrach to ensure the country’s energy source, with substantially higher level and continue to ensure its projects of development."

The commercial exploitation of the Algerian shale gas is planned for 2022 with a production of around 20 billion m3, said last Sunday Sahnoun in his speech at the North Africa Oil and Gas Summit in Algiers.

Sonatrach eyes to reinforce its capacities of shale gas production thanks to the intensification of investments in this field to reach 30 billion m3 by 2025-2027, he said.
