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.
