Algeria's In Amenas gas plant to resume partial output -source
ALGIERS (Reuters) - Algeria's Tiguentourine gas plant near the town of In Amenas will partially resume output in the next few days, but a full return to production is not expected for a month, a source at operator Sonatrach told Reuters.
"A partial not a full production is possible in the next few days, but we need more or less a month to resume full production," the source, who asked not to be named, said on Thursday.
Algeria's national oil and gas company Sonatrach has estimated it is losing $11 million a day from the shutdown of the In Amenas plant, which was taken over by al Qaeda-linked fighters last week.
