Algeria LNG - Overall Project Summary

Algeria LNG - Overall Project Summary

Report summary

Algeria became the world's first LNG exporter when it delivered its first cargo to the UK in 1964. Algeria's LNG facilities are situated on three sites (Arzew, Bethioua and Skikda) and are supplied with gas from the Algerian National Grid. Most Algerian LNG volumes are delivered into Europe, although deliveries have also been made into the US and Asia. Algeria has three operational LNG plants and one decommissioned plant. The two largest and very similar plants, GL1Z and GL2Z, are located at Bethioua; the GL1K plant is located at Skikda. A new 4.5 mmtpa modern train was commissioned at Skikda in 2013 and was meant to replace trains lost through an explosion in 2004. We assume the new, more efficient train will replace Skikda's older LNG trains. Algeria's newest plant, Arzew GL3Z, shipped its first cargo in October 2014. The new plant at Arzew replaced Algeria's smallest plant, GL4Z, which was operational at Arzew from 1964 to late 2010.
