Algeria: Tiguentourine Gas Plant to Reopen This Week

Algeria's Tiguentourine gas plant is set to resume production by February 24th, APS reported on Monday (February 18th).

According to Sonatrach chief Abdelhamid Zerguine, the In Amenas facility will start up again at one-third capacity.

The Sonatrach-BP-Statoil site had been closed since January 20th, when Algerian forces freed hundreds of hostages held by fighters loyal to al-Qaeda emir Mokhtar Belmokhtar. The four-day siege left 38 people dead.
