Maire announced that its subsidiary Tecnimont has been awarded by Sonatrach through a tendering process an EPCC contract for a new linear alkyl benzene plant in the industrial zone of Skikda, located 350 km east of Algeria.

This achievement further strengthens our footprint in Algeria and allows the valorization of the downstream petrochemical value chain, where we are the undisputed world leader.”
