    In addition, Algeria's shale gas resources are estimated at 20 000 bcm (mainly located in the Mouydir, Ahnet, Berkine-Ghadames, ...

  • Energy Prices


    The price of electricity for households is US$3.7c/kWh and for industry US$3.5c/kWh (2019). After decreasing between 2008 and 2015 for industry and 2016 for households, prices have been increased until 2018 (doubling for industry and +30% for households in national currency).


  • Energy Consumption

    Compared to other developing countries with a similar development level, Algeria's consumption is high (1.3 toe per capita), partly because of consumption and losses in the energy sector (mainly in oil and gas production and in LNG plants). Electricity consumption per capita reaches 1 600 kWh (2019).

    Total energy consumption has been increasing almost twice less rapidly since 2015 ...
