Neptune Energy has announced a major milestone for the Touat gas facility in Algeria, with operatorship having been formally passed to Groupement Touat Gaz (GTG).

Day-to-day operation of the facility had been carried out by contracting company Técnicas Reunidas (TR) since gas export began in September 2019. GTG is a joint venture between Neptune Energy (65%) and Sonatrach (35%).

The Touat facility is located around 1,400 km south-west of Algiers and close to Adrar, comprising 19 development wells, a gas treatment plant for gas and stabilised condensate with a gathering network and export pipelines. The facility achieved plateau production in April 2020.

Production from Touat will represent around 9% of Algeria’s total gas exports and will be in production for more than 20 years.
