Sonatrach and GDF to Develop Touat Gas Licence

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 7/7/2009, Location: Africa

Sonatrach and GDF SUEZ announce the development of the Touat gas licence, in southwest Algeria, near the town of Adrar, marking a major step in the project's realization.

After an exploration and appraisal campaign, which started in 2003, during which 7 wells were drilled, the development plan has been approved by the National Agency for the Promotion of the Hydrocarbon Resources of Algeria (ALNAFT).

Work will begin in 2009 with start of output planned for 2013. Peak production should reach about 4.5 bcm of natural gas per year.

Sonatrach and GDF SUEZ will jointly operate the Touat project, which plans for the development of ten fields over a zone covering an area of 3,000 km sq, with the drilling of about forty production wells. It also includes the construction of gas collection and processing infrastructure, as well as a connection to the pipeline which Sonatrach is planning to build in order to connect the southwest Algerian fields to Hassi Rímel.

A sales agreement entrusts Sonatrach with the sale of the gas produced.

Algeria is one of the main long-term suppliers of GDF SUEZ which is the largest buyer for Sonatrachís LNG.
