According to media reports, Algeria’s state energy firm Sonatrach opened bids for international engineering firms on four petrochemical plants to be built in Algeria. Those who are selected will be responsible for the construction of the plants.

The four refineries, which will include a fuel oil cracking as well as a naphtha processing plant and be worth about $6 billion, will be located in Tiaret, Hassi Messaoud and Skikda.

The Tiaret and Hassi Messaoud plants are planned to have a capacity of 5 million tons/year each.

Sonatrach had recently signed agreements with Italy’s Eni and France’s Shell to conduct feasibility studies for new petrochemical projects in Algeria, as part of the country’s plan to improve its foreign investment in the energy sector by building more refineries.
