The contract covers gas processing facilities, a gathering network, and export pipeline, and stipulates completion within 36 months. Plant capacity will be 283 MMcfd of gas. Production startup is slated for summer 2017.

The project’s partners include Sonatrach 40%, Repsol YPF 29.25%, RWE Dea AG 19.5%, and Edison 11.25%.

Twenty-six development wells are planned. A 3D seismic campaign covering 1,450 sq km was completed in April. The acquired data is being processed and interpreted.

Exploration activities began in the North Reggane concession area in 2002, according to RWE Dea.
