A 530 kilometre-long gas pipe has been launched by Algeria so as to supply Tamanrasset with 700,000 cubic metres per day, Sonatrach’s CEO Abdelmoumen Ould Kaddour told, on Tuesday, reporters during a visit to the province.

“The project has cost around $190 million,” added the same official.

Algeria produces 94 billion cubic metres of gas per year, 55 billion cubic metres of which are exported. The new gas pipeline is linked to the In Salah gas field.
