Kuehne + Nagel provides global logistics services for gas treatment facility in the Sahara

Montreal, June 28, 2010 – SNC-Lavalin, one of the world’s leading engineering and construction groups, has awarded Kuehne + Nagel a contract for global logistics services related to their 785 million Euro project with Sonatrach, Algeria’s national oil and gas company.

Sonatrach’s gas treatment complex is being built in Rhourde Nouss in the Sahara desert, approximately 1,200 kilometres to the south east of Algiers, to collect raw gas at different gas fields and includes a natural gas processing facility. The project is expected to be completed in early 2012.

The agreement between Kuehne + Nagel and SNC-Lavalin covers the complete logistics services for the construction material and equipment in connection with the project, originating from different locations in Europe, Asia and North America.

Kuehne + Nagel is delivering the services in cooperation with its Tunisian partner S.M.T.I. – Transport & Logistics, a leading contractor for project services and heavy haulage operations in the Maghreb region.

“The signing of this contract is a further milestone in our strategy to expand our integrated logistics services for the global oil and gas industry,” said Nils Wolf, Kuehne + Nagel’s Senior Vice President for Global Project Logistics.

“On the basis of our complex and fine-meshed global logistics network and our state-of-the art IT-solutions we will combine our in-depth forwarding know-how and our long-standing experience in this specific industry to contribute to the success of SNC-Lavalin in Algeria.”
