Production from Algeria’s Touat gas field will start up in Q1 2018, almost a year later than planned, the head of state-owned Sonatrach has said, according to Reuters.

“Of the 21 wells, only three are ready to come online,” Chief Executive Abdelmoumen Ould Kaddour told reporters.

“I acknowledge that our business in the deep south is very difficult, very complex, but definitely we need to improve our efficiency,” he added.
