Sonatrach and Eni review the progress on O&G projects

12 July 2019

Sonatrach and Eni Chief Executive Officers, Rachid Hachichi and Claudio Descalzi, met recently in Algiers to review the progress made on the activities taking place in the country.

Sonatrach and Eni confirmed the intention to accelerate the development of new oil&gas projects in North Berkine that will lead to a significant increase in national production. The project is composed of two phases: the first, related to oil development, has seen the startup last May, just three months after the entry into force of the farm in agreement on the block; the second one, related to gas development, will see the startup for the end of September 2019 after the completion of the BRN-MLE pipeline.

The project is an example of “fast track” arising from a joined effort of Sonatrach and Eni, based on the shared strategy for an accelerated time to market as well as on the availability and know-how of Sonatrach’s contractor companies called to work on the project for their advanced technology and methodological approach which employs streamlined procedures that allows for fast operations.
