Introduction

  Algeria, officially the People's Democratic Republic of Algeria, is a nation in North Africa.
It is the second largest country on the African continent and the 11th largest country in
the world in terms of total area. It is bordered by Tunisia in the northeast, Libya in the
east, Niger in the southeast, Mali and Mauritania in the southwest, a few kilometers of
the Western Sahara in the west, Morocco in the northwest, and the Mediterranean Sea in
the north.

The fossil fuels energy sector is the backbone of Algeria's economy, accounting for roughly
60% of budget revenues, 30% of GDP, and over 95% of export earnings. The country ranks
fourteenth in petroleum reserves, containing 11.8 billion barrels (1,880,000,000 m³) of
proven oil reserves with estimates suggesting that the actual amount is even more. The U.S.
Energy Information Administration reported that in 2005, Algeria had 160 trillion cubic feet
(Tcf) of proven natural gas reserves, the eighth largest in the world.

In 2001, the government signed an Association Treaty with the European Union that will
eventually lower tariffs and increase trade.

Algeria decided in 2006 to pay off its full $8bn (£4.3bn) debt to the Paris Club group of
rich creditor nations before schedule. This will reduce the Algerian foreign debt to less
than $5bn in the end of 2006.

Seal Support Systems

A major factor in achieving reliable and effective sealing performance is to create the
best fluid environment around the mechanical seal. Investment in appropriate fluid
control equipment will provide significant operating cost savings through reduced
maintenance, lower downtime and with the ever-growing emphasis on our environment,
a safer plant. The selection and design of the right fluid control equipment requires
knowledge and understanding of the operation of seals, the fluids in which they run and
of the rotating equipment using them.

John Crane has equipment specialists in a number of locations with extensive control and
design experience and application knowledge. A full range of products are available which
can be used to create cost effective fluid control systems, meeting all market sector
requirements.

John Crane also provides dedicated teams to design and project manage customer
specified fluid control and associated equipment with detailed knowledge and experience
of the onshore and offshore oil and gas industry.
