Twelve groups presented technical proposals for the project to develop an integrated liquefied natural gas (LNG) project for the six Gassi Touil fields, which have estimated total reserves of 9 trillion cubic feet, equivalent to 5.6 per cent of the country’s proven gas reserves. The project involves the appraisal and development of the three undeveloped southern fields and the construction of infrastructure to transport gas from these and the already developed northern fields to a liquefaction plant, which will be constructed as part of the project. The three northern fields – Nezla South, Hassi Touareg and Toual – have production capacity of 12 million cubic metres a day.
