Algerian state-owned Sonatrach SPA has started production from Tinrhert gas field in block Ohanet II, onshore southeastern Algeria in the Illizi province.
The project connects 36 gas wells from Tinrhert to new inlet separation and compression equipment in nearby Ohanet field.
Commissioning completion of the surface infrastructure has led to a production of 4.5 million cu m/day (MMcmd) of gas, 500 tonnes/day of LPG, and 800 tons/day of condensate, exceeding expected forecasts for the project.
The field is expected to recover 1,059 MMboe, comprised of 6,355 bcf of natural gas reserves.
Tinrhert Project is 100% owned and operated by Sonatrach.
