Total, Sonatrach extend contract to supply Algerian LNG to France

France’s Total and Algeria’s Sonatrach have signed an agreement to extend existing contracts for the supply of liquefied natural gas (LNG) for three additional years. Under the agreement, 2 million tons per year of Algerian LNG will be delivered to the French market. The agreement also includes Sonatrach’s sub-charter of a Total LNG tanker.

“This new contract further enhances the flexibility of Total’s LNG portfolio and strengthens our position as a major partner of Sonatrach,” said Laurent Vivier, Total’s president of gas.
