Engineering group SNC-Lavalin has chosen Kuehne + Nagel to handle logistics services for its £657m project with Sonatrach, Algeria’s national oil and gas company.
Sonatrach’s gas treatment complex is being built in Rhourde Nouss in the Sahara desert, 750 miles south east of Algiers, to collect raw gas at different gas fields and includes a natural gas processing facility.
The project is expected to be completed in early 2012. The agreement between Kuehne + Nagel and SNC-Lavalin covers the logistics services for the construction material and equipment in connection with the project, originating from different locations in Europe, Asia and North America.
Kuehne + Nagel is delivering the services in cooperation with its Tunisian partner SMTI – Transport & Logistics, a leading contractor for project services and heavy haulage operations in the Maghreb region.
