Sonatrach has begun $2 billion of new investments into the Hassi Rmel gas field to keep production stable at the country’s biggest gas field. The objective is to maintain production at the 6.7 Bcf/D level for the next 10 years, according to Chief Executive Abdelmoumene Ould Kaddour. Hassi Rmel represents 60% of Algeria’s total gas output, producing from 6.7 Bcf/D to 7.4 Bcf/D. Investment in the field’s compression facilities is necessary to maintain output, Kaddour said. The Japanese firm JGC has been put in charge of the project.
