Explosive munitions struck the In Salah gas plant in Krechba, Algeria, early Mar. 18. No injuries were reported, but operators shut down the central processing facility as a precaution.
Statoil said explosive munitions were fired “from a distance” at about 6 a.m. local time. The company said its three employees at the plant are safe. BP said there were no reports of any injuries in a rocket attack from outside the site perimeter.
The joint venture in Hassi Messaoud in eastern Algeria has mobilized its emergency response organization.
