France’s Total said first gas has been produced from the Timimoun field in southwestern Algeria.

The production complex has a capacity of around 5 million cubic meters of natural gas per day at plateau, or about 30,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boe/d).

The project is jointly operated by Sonatrach (51 percent), Total (37.75 percent) and Cepsa (11.25 percent).

Timimoun’s gas will be produced with 37 wells connected to a gas processing facility that ties into the GR5 pipeline used to transport gas from fields in southwestern Algeria to Hassi R’mel.

The field will add to Total’s production capacity in Algeria which, in 2017, averaged 15,000 boe/d, all from the in Fouyé Tabankort (TFT) gas and condensate field located 300 kilometers west of the Libyan border. Total holds a 35 percent interest in TFT.
