Project: Arzew Train de GNL
Company: ENI Saipem
Tratos and ENI Saipem cooperation
In July 2008 Sonatrach announced that a contract had been awarded for a new LNG liquefaction train. The onshore contract is worth €2.8bn and will involve the construction of a new LNG liquefaction train on a brownfield site in the industrial zone of Arzew adjacent to the existing refinery. The work was awarded to a joint venture of Saipem/Snamprogetti and Chiyoda on a turn-key basis. The contract will involve the engineering, procurement and construction for a 4.7-million-ton-a-year liquefaction train and associated infrastructure.
Highly specialised cable manufacturer Tratos has supplied to ENI Saipem for the Arzew train de GNL the following cables:
Power cable type number & description: Energy cables from 1 kV to 33 kV, armoured and unarmoured, fire retardant and fire resistant, from 1.5 To 300 cross section, single, 3 core, 4 cores, multicores.
Instrument cable type number and description: Instrumentation cables, single and double screened, armoured and unarmoured, fire resistant and non-fire resistant, pair, multipairs.
Control cable type number & description: Control cable, multipairs, fire resistant or flame retardant, armoured and unarmoured.

Algeria has proven reserves equivalent to 77.9 times its annual consumption. This means that, without Net Exports, there would be about 78 years of oil left (at current consumption levels and excluding unproven reserves).
- Algeria consumes 429,000 barrels per day (B/d) of oil as of the year 2016.
- Algeria ranks 35th in the world for oil consumption, accounting for about 0.4% of the world’s total consumption of 97,103,871 barrels per day.
- Algeria consumes 0.44 gallons of oil per capita every day (based on the 2016 population of 40,551,392 people), or 162 gallons per capita per year (4 barrels). [1 barrel = 42 US Gallons]
- Algeria produces 1,698,785.66 barrels per day of oil (as of 2016) ranking 17th in the world.
- Algeria produces every year an amount equivalent to 5.1% of its total proven reserves (as of 2016).
- Algeria exports 37% of its oil production (633,661 barrels per day in 2016).
Tratos is very pleased to contribute toward achieving Goal 7 of the UN Global Goals to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all, Goal 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure, Goal 13: Climate Action, and Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities.
