HOUSTON, Dec. 2
—Sonatrach awarded Technip a contract for the refurbishment and revamping of the Algiers refinery.

The 38-month turnkey contract for $908 million covers execution of the complete project, including the design, equipment supply, construction, and start-up.

The revamp of the existing installations will enable refining capacity to be increased to 3.6 million tone/year from 2.7 tonnes/year.

The new units will allow the refinery to produce gasoline at specifications similar used in Europe.
