Report summary

With its North African counterpart Egypt facing gas shortages and a dramatic shift in its gas trade position, Algeria has been given a stark warning of the dangers of a gas market at breaking point. Historically, Algeria's gas resource has been sufficient to meet domestic demand as well as export commitments. However, over the mid-term to 2020, rising domestic demand and risks to production will cause the gas supply-demand balance to increasingly tighten, presenting a risk to exports.
