Energy evacuations in Algeria

ENERGY giant Cepsa says it has evacuated an unspecified number of workers from two oil facilities in Algeria.

The move follows the taking of hostages by Islamist militants at a gas plant in the same region.

The mostly Spanish workers have been moved to an area in the centre of the country and that the measure was purely precautionary.

Cepsa, owned by Spanish company International Petroleum Investment Company, says roughly half its production comes from Algeria.

Repsol also said it was operating as normal in Algeria, where it has less than 10 workers.

Spain receives just under half its gas supplies from Algeria.
