The 665-kilometer-long oil pipeline links Algerian oilfields at Haoud El Hamra with the Mediterranean port of Skikda, Algeria. The construction of the pipeline was planned to be finished in 2008. In 2007, the New Zealand company ABB won a contract with Sonatrach to supply pumping stations and automation systems to the NZ-1 pipeline. The contract was reported to be worth $215 million and is part of Sonatrach's goal of increasing Algeria's oil transport capacity by 18 million tons per year.
