London Stock Exchange-listed and Jersey-headquartered oil and gas contractor, Petrofac, is progressing with the construction of the $600m Tinrhert Field Development Project, located in Ohanet, around 1,500km southeast of Algiers.

Petrofac has deployed over 1,000 workers on the site who are carrying out the construction of the new inlet separation and compression facilities. The project’s civil and structural works are in advanced stages, with the focus now being on the installation of mechanical equipment.

In 2018, Petrofac was awarded the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract with the country’s energy giant National Petroleum Corporation of Algeria (Sonatrach) for EPC1 — which includes a new inlet separation and compression centre — of the Tinrhert Field Development Project.

The overall scope of work includes a pipeline network of approximately 400km to connect 36 wells, along with commissioning, start-up, and performance testing of facilities. The company has been associated with Sonatrach for various EPC and engineering services contracts including for the Alrar and Reggane projects that are operational.
