  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Ministry of Energy is responsible for the energy policy and supervises the public energy companies.

    The Hydrocarbon Regulatory Authority regulates the national oil products market by fixing prices.

    The Electricity and Gas Regulatory Committee (CREG) has regulated the electricity and gas markets since 2005. It is responsible for the transparency of the electricity and gas ...

  • Energy Companies


    Sonatrach,thenational company for exploration, production and processing of oil and natural gas, and the marketing of liquid and gas hydrocarbons, was created in 1963. Sonatrach is the largest oil and gas company in Africa.

  • Energy Supply


    Algeria has large proved crude oil and natural gas reserves (1 700 Mt of oil and 2 700 bcm of gas, respectively, in end-2017) and abundant hydrocarbon resources that are already connected to world markets through an extensive natural gas pipeline network. Its main gas field is Hassi R'Mel (among the world's largest with estimated recoverable reserves of around 2 500 bcm). Reserves ...

  • Energy Prices


    The price of electricity for households is US$3.1c/kWh and for industry US$2.6c/kWh (2017). Prices decreased between 2008 and 2015. However, CREG increased the industrial electricity tariff by 20% on 1 January 2016; prices for residential consumers have also increased as 15% and 31% increases are applied to customers of the third tranche (1 000-4 000 kWh/year) and the fourth tranche (over 4 ...

  • 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 1 550 kWh (2017).

    Total energy consumption increased rapidly until 2015 (5 %/year since 2000). It ...

  • Issues & Prospects

    Algeria aims to increase crude oil production to 85 Mt in 2020, seeking to make up for declining revenues from oil sales. In the framework of its development plan 2014-2018, Sonatrach is investing US$102bn; US$42bn are dedicated to the development of oil and gas deposits, including US$22bn for gas development. Those investments very recently improved oil recovery in the large field of Hassi ...
