ABB has been awarded a contract by Sonatrach - Algeria’s state-run oil and gas company - for the realization of the upgrading of OH3 oil pipeline. The total value of the contract is US $70 million.

The project, to be completed within 22 months from effective date, encompasses the realization of an oil stocking and dispatching center at Hassi Berkine and a pumping station at Nezla and is aimed at increasing the capacity of the existing pipeline from 17 up to 23 million barrels/year. The 290-kilometer pipeline links the Hassi Berkine oil field to the dispatching terminal of Haoudh El Hamra, which is located in the Berkine Basin, southeast of Algeria.

The scope of work includes the engineering, procurement and construction of the plant. The project will be designed at ABB Lummus Global S.p.A’s office in Milan, while construction activities will be carried out by Sarpi, a 50/50 joint venture company owned by Sonatrach and ABB.

"We are proud to have a further chance to work with Sonatrach," said Giorgio Fantoni. "This is a confirmation of our long-lasting cooperation and will serve to enhance our position with a major client."

The contract was officially signed in Algiers on May 22, 2001 in the presence of: Mr. Chakib Khelil — President of Sonatrach and Minister of Energy and Mines, Mr. Giorgio Fantoni —President of ABB Lummus Global SpA, Mr. Zerguine Abdelhamid — Vice President of Sonatrach and Mr. Francesco Gentile — Vice President of ABB Lummus Global SpA.
