Algeria: In Amenas Gas Plant to Reopen

Algeria's In Amenas gas complex will resume operations at one-third capacity, APS quoted the Tiguentourine plant's director as saying on Thursday (January 31st).

"Thirty-five per cent of the total production... will be marketed as soon as possible," the director of the Tiguentourine plant told visiting reporters.

The facility is set to reopen within a month, but foreign workers will not return for another three.

Thirty-seven foreign hostages were killed when terrorists stormed the gas plant last month. One Algerian and 29 insurgents were also killed.
