Algerian state oil company Sonatrach plans to explore for oil in the West African state of Senegal and is close to signing an exploration agreement with Senagal's state company Petrosen. A statement issued at the end of the last meeting of the Algerian-Senegalese joint commission noted the recent discovery of gas deposits in Senegal and the possibility of finding oil, which had led Petrosen to invite Sonatrach to be a partner.Petrosen said recently it had discovered natural gas reserves estimated at 10 bncm in the region of Thies, 70 kilometres (45 miles) from the capital Dakar. A Petrosen official said the discovery would meet Senegal's natural gas needs for 30 years.
