Algeria's In Amenas gas complex, shut down since the deadly al-Qaeda siege last month, will resume operations on Sunday (February 24th), APS reported.
Prime Minister Abdelmalek Sellal will lead a ceremony to rename the workers' residence hall at the Tiguentourine site in honour of Mohamed Amine Lahmar. Terrorists killed the young security guard after he triggered the alarm to warn workers of the attack. The Sonatrach-BP facility had been closed since January 20th, when Algerian forces freed hundreds of hostages held by fighters loyal to al-Qaeda emir Mokhtar Belmokhtar.
The plant will initially operate at one-third capacity.
