The Krechba plant at In Salah was the world's first onshore carbon capture and sequestration facilitySuspected jihadists launched a rocket attack Friday on an Algerian gas plant jointly run by foreign companies, three years after a deadly hostage crisis at another facility in the Sahara desert. There were no reports of casualties in Friday’s assault on a plant operated by Britain’s BP, Norway’s Statoil and Algerian company Sonatrach. It was the most serious such incident since Al-Qaeda-linked militants stormed a complex in Algeria’s remote east in 2013 and began a four-day siege that left dozens dead.
