ALGIERS (Reuters) – Oil majors Anadarko, Total, ENI and Statoil have expressed interest in helping Algeria start offshore drilling, according to state news agency APS which quoted the CEO of the North African country’s state energy firm Sonatrach.

“They are interested in joining Sonatrach to develop offshore drilling activity in Algeria,” CEO Abdelmoumen Ould Kaddour said.

Sonatrach has launched seismic studies near the coastal cities of Oran and Bejaia to evaluate the hydrocarbon potential and setting up offshore drilling plans, he added.
