Algerian state petroleum company Sonatrach has signed an agreement with Eni to build a pipeline linking two gas blocks in the Berkine Basin, the Italian major announced on Wednesday.

The aim is to optimise existing infrastructure in the area by creating a gas hub within the basin. Eni and Sonatrach also agreed pricing conditions for next year and have agreed to start negotiations to extend gas trading beyond their contractual deadline of 2019.
