Sonatrach announces four new oil and gas discoveries
Sonatrach announced four new hydrocarbon discoveries Sunday (April 15th) in Algeria's southeast Berkine and Illizi basins. In the Berkine basin, Sonatrach and Canada’s First Calgary Petroleum made a gas discovery with an estimated output of 2,006 cubic metres per hour. In Illizi and West Ihansaten, Sonatrach and Medex North Africa made two gas and oil discoveries with a flow of 2,875 cubic metres per hour. Sonatrach discovered the fourth gas field in partnership with Petroceltic International in the Illizi basin with an estimated flow of 7,905 m3/hour. Since the beginning of the year, Sonatrach has made six hydrocarbon discoveries. These discoveries and the completion of maintenance projects on several oil facilities are expected to increase Algeria's hydrocarbon supplies. (Sonatrach website, APS)
