CbI publishes second edition of Algeria’s Energy Future


Africa’s most important gas producer is at a decisive turning point in its post-colonial history. A generational shift within its ruling elite is under way, an assurgent terrorist threat from the Sahel has introduced new instability to its southern regions, and the economic basis for sustaining its youthful and rapidly growing population is in doubt.

To help businesses evaluate this complex set of political, security and energy sector risks, Cross-border Information today published the second edition of Algeria’s Energy Future and our revised and updated Hydrocarbons Sector Organisation Chart with profiles of key decision-makers in the sector.

Algeria's Energy Future tackles vital themes including the new licensing round, hydrocarbons law revisions, the potential impact of shale gas, the status of reserves, Sonatrach's ambitions and growing domestic energy demand.
The full list of contents can be read here.

Supported by years of detailed reporting contained in CbI’s powerful online archive and its ongoing monthly monitoring, these two detailed pieces of research bring into focus the questions facing the sector at this vital time.

Industry focused – With informed analyses, detailed project listings and a brand new map, Algeria’s Energy Future and the Hydrocarbons Sector Organisation Chart will assist participants in the new licensing round, whether newcomers or established players, to improve decision-making within their organisations.  These publications are also aimed at other industry players whose business depends on progress in the Algerian upstream.

Enlightening and easy to read – Unlike other aggregated reports, Algeria’s Energy Future exclusively features Cross-border Information’s original and high quality sourced journalism.

Up-to-date and accurateAlgeria’s Energy Future features a brand new map of fields, licence areas, and infrastructure; an upstream project update with 80 exploration licences, 17 oil developments, 10 gas developments; and 63 separate news reports and analyses.

Insightful and clear – The Hydrocarbons Sector Organisation Chart describes where named individuals sit within the ministry, regulators and Sonatrach; it shows how each body fits within the structure; and provides detailed profiles of energy and mines minister Youcef Yousfi, senior advisor Ali Hached, Sonatrach  PDG Abdelhamid Zerguine and all four Sonatrach vice-presidents plus short profiles of another eight senior ministerial officials, the regulators and 10 senior Sonatrach directors.
