Algeria’s state-owned Sonatrach will invest $250 million to boost production at the Tinhert gas field in the Ohanet region from 5 million cubic metres per day (MMcm/d) to 20 MMcm/d, according to Managing Director Abdelmoumen Ould Kaddour.

Agence Ecofin has reported that the development work, which is considered highly strategic for the country, has been partitioned into five segments, each of which will be undertaken by separate companies. Four of these – ENGCB, ENGTP, ENAC and Infratelle – are subsidiaries of Sonatrach.
