This column is usually about Asia, but this month, World Oil wanted to address the Tigantourine gas plant assault in Algeria and what energy companies might do to address increasing attacks on the oil and gas sector, worldwide.
To recap, on January 16, the Signed-in-Blood Battalion (SBB) terror group raided the Tigantourine gas plant near In Aménas. Tigantourine is run by Algeria’s state-owned Sonatrach along with BP, Statoil and JGC Corp. About 1,000 people worked there, both Algerians and foreigners. SBB is a spinoff of al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM). AQIM is waging operations throughout North Africa and includes veterans of Algeria’s Armed Islamic Group of Algeria (GIA).
