BIR REBAA NORTH, Algeria: Algeria’s Sonatrach and Italy’s Eni are strengthening ties to bolster investment in Algeria’s energy sector, including in offshore and solar operations, officials from both companies said on Saturday.

Eni, the biggest foreign investor in oil and gas in Algeria, held a board meeting at the Bir Rebaa North (BRN) oilfield in the southeast of the country on Friday evening, which it said was a way of showing its commitment to its partnership with Sonatrach.

“This is a symbolic Eni meeting to show how important Algeria is to us,” Eni Chief Executive Claudio Descalzi said during the visit to BRN.

“We have invested 11 billion euros ($11.8 billion) in Algeria since 2010, it represents 30 percent of our investment abroad,” Descalzi said.
