ALGERIAN GAS COMPLEX RESUMES OPERATIONS AT FULL CAPACITY
ALGIERS, -- The Algerian gas complex of Tiguentourine, located some 1,600 kilometres southeast of here, has resumed full production after the recent restart of Train 3, which was damaged in a terrorist attack in 2013, says the national hydrocarbon company, SONATRACH.
SONATRACH announced in a statement here Thursday the restart of Train 3 of the Tiguentourine gas complex on July 27, 2016, after the completion of the repair works and integrity checking.
"After trains 1 and 2 were put on stream in 2013, the Tiguentourine complex is now running at its full production capacity with the restart of Train 3," added the statement.
Train 3 was damaged during the terrorist attack that targeted Tiguentourine gas complex in January 2013, recalled SONATRACH.
"Conducted by a very professional and skilled Algerian team, the repair works were economically and politically successful for our country, for SONATRACH and for its partners," said the company's statement.
The gas plant is operated by SONATRACH and its partners, BP and Statoil.
SONATRACH also hailed the spirit of solidarity and commitment showed by its staff and its partners during the repair works.
