The In Salah Gas field in Southern Central Algeria is a major gas discovery. Seven proven gas fields will deliver a total of 9 billion cubic meters of dry gas annually. The gas, will be transported to the market by a pipeline connecting the gas field to the major collection point at Hassi R’Mel. The gas will be fed into major gas transport lines at this point for delivery to market in Europe via the trans-Mediterranean pipeline systems. When full deliveries of In Salah gas are made from the field, they will increase the total gas exported from Algeria by about 15%. BP and Sonatrach jointly developed the project, and the In Salah Project opens a new area of Algeria, to development.
