In April 2017, we signed a comprehensive agreement with Sonatrach to strengthen our partnership, particularly in the area of exploration and production.

- All of our production comes from the Tin Fouyé Tabankort (TFT) license, in which we have a 35% interest. TFT is a gas and condensate field 300 kilometers west of the Libyan border.

- We also own a 37.75% stake in the Timimoun gas field, which is currently in production.

- Lastly, we hold a 12.25% interest in Blocks 208 and 404, which comprise 17 fields in production spread over three unitized zones (Hassi Berkine, Ourhoud and El Merk).

The gas produced under our licenses is sold on behalf of Sonatrach. 
 
We also have a contract to purchase 3.6 million metric tons of LNG per year until 2020.

We market the following petroleum products and related services:
- Lubricants
- Asphalt

Our local affiliate, Total Bitumes Algérie, also has an import depot with 6,000 metric tons of storage capacity in the Port of Ténès and a cut-back and emulsion unit in Ouargla, 800 kilometers south of Algiers.
