In Salah Paves the Way
A Gas Project in a Remote District of Algeria's Sahara Desert
is Pioneering Technology That Can be Applied to Radically
Cut the World's CO2 Emissions


When more than two
dozen world energy
ministers joined industry
leaders, financiers,
diplomats and dignitaries
to attend the 10th Unctad
Oil & Gas Trade and
Finance conference in
Algiers in APril, it was a
perfect opportunity for
the host country Algeria
to showcase its own oil
and gas industry.
One conference
presentation in particular
highlighted how this
North African nation is
leading the world in a
concerted effort to


develop carbon dioxide
(C02) capture and
storage expertise. lain W
Wright, C02 project
manager with every giant
BP, described how his
company in partnership
with the Norwegian oil
company Statoil and
Algeria's national oil
company Sonatrach has
developed pioneering
technologies at the In
Salah project.
The scheme began
when BP agreed in
December 1995 to a joint
venture project with the
Algerian state-owned


company Soatrach. The
project aimed to explore,
appraise, develop and
market gas from the
remote In Salah region of
the Sahara, some
1,200km south of the
capital Algiers.
In Salah is actually the
name of the nearest

Sermon
(continued from page 3)

cast out the beam out of
thine own eye; and then
shalt thou see clearly to
cast out the mote out of
thy brother's eye.
6. Give not that which
is holy unto the dogs,
neither cast ye your pearls
before swine, lest they
trample them under their
feet, and turn again and
rend you.
7. Ask, and it shall be
given you; seek, and ye
shall find; knock, and it
shall be opened unto you;
8. For every one that
asketh receiveth; and he
that seeketh findeth; and
to him that knocketh it
shall be opened.
9. Or what man is there
of you, whom if his son
ask break, will he give
him a stone?
10. Or if he ask a fish,
will he give him a
serpent?
11. If ye then, being
evil, know how to give
good gifts unto your
children, how much more
shall your Father which is
in heaven give good
things to them that ask
him?
12. Therefore all things
whatsoever ye would that
men should do to you, do
ye even so to them: for
this is the law and the
prophets.
13. Enter ye in at the
strait gate: for wide is the
gate, and broad is the way,
that leadeth to


destruction, and many
there be which go in
threat.
14. Because strait is the
gate, and narrow is the
way, which leadeth unto
life, and few there be that
find it.
15. Beware of false
prophets, which come to
you in sheep's clothing,
but inwardly they are
ravening wolves.
16. Ye shall know them
by their fruits. Do men
gather grapes of thorns, or
figs of thistles?
17. Even so every good
tree bringeth forth good
fruit; but a currupt tree

John XXIII
(continued from page 3)
rapprochment that he
himself had preached and
set in motion.
A long stay as
Apostolic Delegate in the
East (ten years in
Bulgaria and ten years in
Turkey and Greece) had
brought the future John
XXIII closer to problems
of the Eastern Church in a
way that had never been
accessible to any other
pope before him.
To be sure, Leo XIII,
Pius XI were
extraordinarily
enlightened in this area
and they had sponsored
many initiatives on the
basis of their insight.
Nevertheless they started
out from considerations
which were of an abstract
character. They were
lacking in that concrete
knowlegeability which
only experience can
provide.
Archbishop Angelo


ROncalli was especially
suited to acquire precisely
this experience thanks to
his unusually receptive
temperament, the fruit of
his great humility. Where
others might be enclosed
in the narrow circle of
comfortable prejudices,
and might have
inattentively walked by,
the future John XXIII
showed himself open and
ready to view persons and
things in a more objective
and optimistic light.
His deep
understanding of the
characteristic traditions of
the Oriental Church was
manifested first and
foremost in his attitude
toward the Eastern
Churches that are united
with Rome. The cordiality
with which the Pope
greeted the supreme
heads of these Churches
must have deeply stirred
them because, as will be
recalled, they were
greatly grieved by certain

Doing Good
(continued from page 3)
Allah has provided
mankind with all those
means by which he or she
can find out the right path,
can sift right from wrong
and distinguish truth from
falsehood. Man/woman
has been endowed with
both spiritual and
physical eyes by which he
or she can distinguish
good from evil and has
been given a tongue and
two lips that he or she


might ask for guidance
and above all, Allah has
placed before him or her
supreme object that he or
she may devote all his/her
faculties and energies to
achieve it that is going
good to others. (Holy
Quran. Tr. Ghulam Farid,
F.N. 3350, P. 1359)

good deeds, there shall be

Rachana's status as an
international center of
culture for years to come
will most likely be
realized.
It was in 1994 that
Rachana, and not just the
artists who hailed from
this small village in
northern Lebanon, first
captivated an
international audience.
That year, Alfred and
Youssef, carrying on their
brother Michael's vision
and spirit, hosted the first
Rachana International
Sculpture Forum, inviting
artists from around the
globe to display their
works in an open-air
exhibition. This forum
became an annual
tradition that continued
through last year with the


same passion with which
it began. In 1997,
UNESCO declared
Rachana a global village
of sculpture housed in the
open air, and just last year,
this annual forum
attracted dozens of world
artists, allowing Alfred to
glimpse the future success
he had predicted for his
village.
Alfred Basbous, the
middle brother, was born
in 1924 and grew up using
his hands and working
with stone. He first
became interested in
sculpture through his
holder brother Michael,
whose abstract style was a
source of inspiration for
Alfred. Alfred Basbous'
abstract style "is not a
stylistic journey and a
meaningless thing in a
vacuum, but rather is

creation in a vacuum,"
writes art critic Lor
Ghareeb in An Nahar
newspaper on January 2,
2006. In Al Mustaqbal
(January 3, 2006), Yaqzan
al-Taqi also recognizes
the strong influence of the
Basbous family on Alfred
and claims that Alfred's
"exceptional" family had
instilled in him a love of
and curiosity about the
challenging Lebanese
stone from an early age.
Indeed, al-Taqi finds "the
spirit of the village, the
people and the world" in
all of the Basbous
brothers' works.
According to al-Taqi,


Alfred in particular was "a
man of madness in his
love for sculpture and
stone."
Alfred began creating
his own sculptures in
1958 and took part in his
first private exhibition in
1959 at Alecco Saab's
Gallery in Beirut. He
earned international
recognition just a few
years later, in 1961, when
his works were featurecdin
the International
Exhibition of Sculpture at
the Rodin Museum, Paris.
THis exhibition took

Basbous
(continued from page 14)
Alfred received a
scholarship from the
French government to
attend L'Ecole Nationale
des Beaux Arts.
According to art critic
Muha Sultan, writing in
Al Hayat, January 2006,
Alfred was also
influenced by modernist
sculptors, including
Auguste Rodin, Henry
Moore, and Hans (or
Jean) Arp, as well as by
his fellow countryman,
the acclaimed sculptor
Youssef Hoyeck. Hailing
Alfred as "the sheikh of
Lebanese sculpture,"
Sultan describes Alfred's
artistic journey and how,
early on, woman emerged
as a central theme and
figure in his works.
Mahmoud Charaf also
comments on Alfred's
obsession with woman in
An Nahar newspaper in
January 2006. Charaf
recalls Alfred's comments
on his first experience of
carving the figure of a
woman into stone: "One
day, I saw a picture of a
naked woman in a
magazine. I molded her


figure into stone with
liberty. I placed a snake
aside her and an apple in
her hands." This, the first
of many sculptures in
which Alfred immediately
portrays the body and
spirit of woman, supports
many art critics' claims
that his son's view of
woman. Continuing his
discussion of Alfred and
woman, Charaf clearly
states that Alfred was not
haunted by just one
woman. Rather, Charaf
argues, Alfred saw
woman as a "symbol of
creation; it is her body
that carries within it the
seed of new life," another
Biblical allusion to Eve.
Shifting to a discussion
on style rather than
content, Charaf notes that
in his personal of woman,
Alfred skillfully gives the
illusion of softness and
malleability despite the
hard stone. It is as if the
chisel did not have to
break away unyielding
pieces of stone to make
such forms appear, Charaf
asserts. He continues,
saying that this illusion
"is a symbolic gesture to

the feminine nature,
which is distinguished
above all else by its
softness and tenderness -
this softness and
tenderness that draws us
in and that never left
Alfred ambivalent in the
face of beauty."
Alfred created his own
"austere, aesthestic
world" of art "with the
simplicity of peasants and
skill of builders,"
comments Maroun Hakim
on Alfred's abstract and
feminine style in An
Nahar, January 2006. In
an article in Al
Mustaqbal, January 2006,
editor and poet Paul
Shaoul focuses neither on
the specific forms in
Alfred's works nor on his
use of woman, but rather
on the transience in his
work. "Alfred is a
sculptor of passage; he
goes from obsession to
obsession, from illusion
to illusion, from
adventure to adventure,
from beautiful madness to
beautiful madness, from
birth to birth," Shaoul
asserts. Though many,


like Sultan, see clear
influences on Alfred and
his works, Shaoul
believes that Alfred was a
free spirit who did not
follow any preexisting
theories or ideologies.
Alfred's modernist
style and his pure passion
of molding stone into art
earned him much
recognition in Lebanon
and abroad. In addition to
the fame he earned
himself through the
annual Rachana
International Sculpture
Forum, Alfred also
received an award from
L'Orient newspaper in
Lebanon in 1963, the
Alexandria Biennial in
1974, and, upon his death,
Nassif Qalosh, the
governor of northern
Lebanon, awarded Alfred
Lebanon's Order of Merit.
Alfred Basbous' works
continue to be displayed
in exhibitions around the
world and, of course,
stand as a lasting tribute
in Rachana.

rising C02 levels, it is
unwise to continue
putting so much C02 in
the atmosphere.
When historical C02
concentration curves from
the past 50 years are
extrapolated over the
coming decades, the level
., of C02 in the atmosphere
is projected to reach 560
ppm by 2050, around
twice the pre-industrial
level before man started
burning fossil fuels in

The UN's Framework

target level of 550ppm to
"prevent dangerous

with the climate system."
But uncertainties about
the precise impact this
target level will have, or if
it is even achievable,
because extrapolating the
C02 curve might not tell
the complete story. While
emissions of C02 from

are growing at 1.2%
annually, those from

suggests that the world
needs to cut C02
emissions into the
atmosphere by half to
stabilize at th target
levels.
Given that it is
extremely unlikely fossil
fuels such as oil, gas and
coal could ever be
replaced in time by energy
alternatives such as
nuclear or renewables, all
the world's major energy
companies are investing
heavily in research and
development of the means
to reduce C02 emissions.
One of the most
promising technologies to
have been developed is
what is sometimes termed
carbon sequestration, or
carbon capture.
Carbon capture is


hardly a new concept.
Shell claims to have
pioneered the idea way
back in the 1970s when
the company developed
pressurized gas re-
injection into oil wells for
what is known as
enhanced oil recovery
(EOR). Indeed, BP itself
uses EOR technology in
Algeria at the Rhourde El
Baguel oilfield that has
been in production since
the 190s, but the
difference with the gas re-
injection projects at In
Salah is that, as a gas
field, sequestration is
motivated not by EOR,
for there is no additional
oil to recover, but simply
to reduce greenhouse gas
emissions.
The In Salah gas
project had a projected
budget of about $3.5bn

which included laying a
520km pipeline
northward from Krechna
to Hassai R'Mel where
existing Conatrach gas
pipelines connect to two
sub-sea export pipelines
to Europe and a natural
has liquefaction plant on
th Algerian coast. In Salah
is expected to produce
around 9bn cubic metres
of natural gas each year
over its anticipated 20-
year lifespan.
But In Salah's gas has a
C02 content frequently as
high as 10%, and Europe,
which sources around a
third of its natural gas
from Algeria, requires that
this C02 content be
"scrubbed" to a maximum


of 0.3% before it is
delivered to its markets.
"In the past," Wright
explained, "we would
have scrubbed the C02
content and simply vented
it into the atmosphere. But
at In Salah we took the
decision to build two
massive compressions
trains at Krechba to
prepare it for re-
injection." The $50m re-
injection plant will give a
net reduction of C02
emissions of about lm
tons a year, or 17m tons
over the project's lifetime.
That is the equivalent of
taking about a quarter of a
million cards off the
world's roads every year.
