The Director of the Algerian Energy Company Sonelgaz, Mohammed Arqab, clarified that his company had agreed with the General Electricity Company of Libya (GECOL) to develop a roadmap that would include the participation of Sonelgaz in improving the Libyan electricity production.

Arqab confirmed on Thursday that a delegation of technicians from the company visited Libya to inspect the generators and restore them so that they could launch a project to complete the medium voltage line to transfer energy to Libya, according to the Algerian newspaper Al-Nasr.

Arqab stated last July that Algeria was studying the possibility of linking the high-voltage lines between Algeria and Libya via Tunisia to supply Libya with electricity.
