The two companies confirmed their willingness to continue the acceleration of the Berkine Nord project, which entered into production last February, just one year after the signing of the agreements, with the aim of exporting 6 million m3/d of gas by the end of 2020.
Both CEOs committed to an accelerated time to market path by leveraging the capacity of the contracting companies of the Sonatrach group involved in the execution of the works.
During the meeting, the companies signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the aim of expanding their collaboration in the context of upstream activities. The agreement provides for joint work aimed at identifying exploration, development and production opportunities, based on the new Hydrocarbons law and extending the fast track development model successfully applied to the Berkine Nord project.
Furthermore, agreements have been concluded for the upstream gas marketing of the Berkine Nord Blocks and the commercial conditions of the gas import contract in Italy for the thermal year 2020 – 21.
