Total SA reported that natural gas production has started from Timimoun field in southwestern Algeria. Algeria’s Sonatrach jointly operates the Timimoun production complex with partners. Sonatrach has 51% interest, Total 37.75%. and Cepsa 11.25%.

Gas from Timimoun eventually will be produced with a total of 37 wells connected to a processing plant tied into the GR5 pipeline to move gas from southwestern Algeria to Hassi R’mel (OGJ Online, Oct. 9, 2009).

Total has held Algerian assets for decades. In 2017, Total’s production in Algeria averaged 15,000 boe/d, all of it from the Tin Fouye Tabankort gas-condensate field 300 km west of the Libyan border.

Through the Maersk Oil acquisition, which closed on Mar. 8, Total also holds 12.25% interest in the El-Merk, Hassi Berkine, and Ourhoud oil fields with a combined production capacity of 400,000 boe/d.
