Sonatrach, An

International
Gas Dimension

50 Years of Support to National Development

S O N AT R A C H
Sonatrach is asserting its gas vocation year after year.
Given the richness of the Algerian subsoil, the investments that have been made,
as well as the involvement of its human resources and the role it has been playing
in the supply of international markets, Sonatrach is today considered as the first
Mediterranean gas company.
Hassi RMel, a prestigious name, is one of the largest gas deposits in the world,
and, indeed, not to forget In Salah, Ohanet, Tin Fouy Tabenkort, Rhourde Nouss,
Hamra and Alra, to mention only the largest.

A significant Potential
Seeking a better value and diversifying outlets through integration in gas
downstream, are the key words of the Algerian gas export policy. The development
of the TSGP and Galsi projects, the Medgaz line gas in in 2011, directly
linking Algeria to Spain, the leasing of an additional capacity in the Isle of Grain
terminal and the extension of the Enrico Mattei gas pipeline have boosted
Sonatrach export capacity, thus providing significant additional export volumes to
supply Europe.
As regards LNG, Sonatrach has launched 02 new liquefaction trains, one in Skikda
and a second train in Arzew.

SIGNIFICANT GAS RESERVES


Fields Operated by Sonatrach
Hassi RMel, one of the largest gas fields in the world, accounts for 60% of the total primary production in
Algeria, or 92 billion m.
In addition to the giant field of Hassi RMel, Sonatrach operates other fields such as Rhourde Nouss, Alrar,
Gassi Touil and Tin Fouye Tabankort.

Fields Operated in Partnership


Natural gas production in partnership contributes some 22% of the volume of gas produced in Algeria,
or 34 billion m.
- In Salah is operated in partnership with BP and Statoil;
- Ohanet is operated in partnership with BHP Billiton;
- In Amenas is operated in partnership with BP and Statoil
- Tin Fouye Tabankort is operated in partnership with Total and Repsol
- Hamra is operated in partnership with Total

GAS DISPATCHING NATIONAL CENTRE (CNDG)


The NCDG is located in Hassi RMel. This is where gas gathering and dispatching is made through gas
pipelines to local (Sonelgaz, third-party clients and self-consumption of Sonatrach units) and international
customers (delivery to liquefaction complexes and transcontinental pipelines: PEDRO DURAN FARELL,
ENRICO MATTEI and MEDGAZ).

Hydrocarbons Transportation Netwok

THE MAIN EXPORT ROUTES OF NATURAL GAS

Natural gas pipelines form the cornerstone of the natural gas marketing policy.
This policy is centered on three objectives:
Diversifying outlets
Seeking valorizing markets
Selecting the less capital intensive form of export
The pipeline transportation network has 14 pipelines with a total length of 8629 km, with a carrying capacity
of 142 billion Cm / year.
