Total announces first gas from the Timimoun field in southwestern Algeria.
The production complex with a capacity of around 5 million m3/d of natural gas at plateau (around 30 000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boe/d)), is jointly operated by Sonatrach (51%), Total (37.75%) and Cepsa (11.25%).
"The launch of Timimoun is a new step in the group’s history in Algeria, where we are a longterm partner. Achieved within the planned budget, the project will contribute to Total’s production growth in 2018, "said Arnaud Breuillac, President of Exploration & Production at Total.
Timimoun's gas will be produced with 37 wells connected to a gas processing facility that ties into the GR5 pipeline used to transport gas from fields in southwestern Algeria to Hassi R’mel.
