The signing of the MoU strengthens the existing partnership between Equinor and Sonatrach.
The MoU also includes cooperation within greenhouse gas emissions and carbon management, industrial safety management, implementation of technology to increase hydrocarbon recovery and development of a model for driving high-performance oil operations.

50% of BP shares in the gas-condensate field In Amenas
and 49% of BP shares in the dry gas field in In Salah
