Resuming ordinary operations at In Amenas

18 months have passed since the In Amenas attack. Now Statoil and the joint venture partners are ready to resume ordinary operations at the plant.

The corporate executive committee has decided that ordinary rotation is to be resumed at the plant as all defined security measures have been implemented.

In June, the corporate executive committee approved the return of temporary manning to the plant to finalise the implementation of the outstanding security requirements.

The goal was to verify the implementation of the last security measures and to prepare for a resumption of ordinary operation at In Amenas. During the autumn of 2013 and early in 2014 it was decided to resume ordinary operations at the other locations in Algeria.

“The decision to resume ordinary operations also at In Amenas is the result of a thorough and stepwise process of identifying necessary security measures, implementing them and validating that they are in place and operational,” says Lars Christian Bacher, executive vice president for Development & Production International (DPI).
