ALGIERS, Jan. 21 (Xinhua) -- China Harbor Engineering Company (CHEC) signed on Monday in Algiers a contract worth 445 million U.S. dollars with state-owned corporation Sonatrach for port installations in eastern Algeria, APS news agency reported.

According to the contract, CHEC will provide studies of and set up a terminal for liquefied gas, and build marine and harbor infrastructure for a fuel terminal in the province of Skikda, 400 km east of the capital Algiers.
