Gas Pipeline Surveillance - Gassi Touil / Algeria

Algeria is the 9th-largest producer of natural gas in the world. Due to rapid economic growth in recent years, energy consumption in the country is rising swiftly, and the Algerian government is looking to expand natural gas production even further.

The Gassi Touil natural gas project adds significantly to Algeria’s total natural gas production capacity, and the Algerian government had been waiting for its completion with high expectations.

This natural gas plant is situated in the Sahara Desert, 770km southeast of the Algeiers, capital city of Algeria. Gasproduced from a total of 52 different gas fields around the region is carriedto the central processing facility at the plant via a network of pipelinestotaling 360km in length. At the plant, the gas is processed into threeintermediates: sales gas, LPG, and condensate, and shipped to the transportterminal 14km away. This gas is then transported to the Arzew LNG plant on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, and exported as LNG.

Sunstar helps the customer to setup a comprehensive security system by integrating CCTV, IDS and leak detection to protect the production of the natural gas. Several unforeseen circumstances caused difficulties with project execution, but thanks to the effort made by all the project members, the project was successfully completed in the end of Y2013.
