As part of the Berkine Sud contract, signed between SONATRACH and Eni in December 2021, under the aegis of the new hydrocarbons law 19-13, SONATRACH has announced the start of production of two gas fields linked to this contract. The start of production of these two fields took place in September 2022, i.e. only 6 months after the entry into force of the said Contract, thanks to development in accelerated mode.This new achievement will enable daily production of 1 million cubic meters of gas and 4,000 barrels of associated liquids. This production capacity is expected to be increased to 2 million cubic meters by the end of this year.These additional quantities, added to the quantities produced by the 2 Berkine Nord fields, which entered production in July 2022, increase the volumes of gas produced by the SONATRACH – Eni association and contribute to the increase in Algerian gas exports intended for the market.
