Turboalternator In Amenas Sonatrach
In Amenas is the largest wet gas development project in Algeria. The project includes the development of four primary gas fields in the Illizi Basin in south-eastern Algeria and the associated gas processing facility.The In Amenas Gas Project, located close to the Libyan border in the Sahara desert, around 1,300km away from the capital city Algiers, commenced production in 2006. Mesit provided the EPCI of a complete power plant and 8.2 MW Turbo alternator.
A compression project was launched at In Amenas in 2011, to maintain the plateau production. The project was scheduled to be completed in 2013. However, a terrorist attack on the In Amenas facility in the beginning of 2013 has significantly brought down the In Amenas production. The development projects planned for the gas production facility are also on hold due to security concerns.
