Algerian gas plant resumes some production after attack - minister
ALGIERS (Reuters) - Algeria's Tiguentourine gas plant resumed some production on Sunday, more than a month after 37 foreign workers were killed in an Islamist attack on the plant, Energy Minister Mohamed Zerguine told state radio.
"It is a partial resuming of production ... we will get 3 billion cubic metres per year," Zerguine was quoted as saying.
The plant produces about 9 billion cubic metres per year of gas, about 11.5 percent of the country's annual total.
