Algeria Energy

As Algeria attempts to curb the impact of the global downturn in oil prices and sustain economic growth, boosting hydrocarbons production to make up for lower prices and keep pace with rising domestic demand is a priority. Making the market attractive to foreign investors is fundamental to raising production, as are measures to ensure sustainable consumption of energy. With two-thirds of the territory still unexplored and the EU export market next door, there is still plenty of scope to expand both production and revenues even amidst the current low price environment. This chapter contains a viewpoint from Noureddine Boutarfa, Minister of Energy; and interviews with Akli Brihi, Maghreb Cluster President, Schneider Electric; and Amine Mazouzi, CEO, Sonatrach.
