Reuters reported that Algeria has started pumping gas through a new pipeline that carries output from southwestern fields including Reggane North, Touat and Timimoun. The pipeline has capacity of 8.8 billion cubic metre of gas a year, costing USD 774 million, an official at state energy firm Sonatrach told reporters at the Hassi Rmel gas field.

Sonatrach CEO Mr Abdelmoumen Ould Kaddour said that "We are so proud of this project because it has been constructed 100 percent by Algerian firms."

OPEC member Algeria has been hit hard by the slump in world oil prices and has struggled to attract energy investment to help develop new fields and increase existing production.
