Algeria's Sonatrach announces gas discovery

By OGJ editors

HOUSTON, Apr. 2 -- Algerian state oil and gas company Sonatrach announced a natural gas and condensate discovery in the Brides region, 45 km from Gassi Touil gas field.

The discovery followed the drilling of the Brides West well, Brdw-1, to 5,296 m, Sonatrach said. Appraisal drilling will determine the extent of the reserves, which the company described as likely "sizeable," OPECNA reported.

Gassi Touil is 150 km southeast of Algeria's biggest oil field, Hassi Messaoud. Companies are bidding to develop reserves, lay a pipeline, and expand liquefaction facilities for that field.
