Algeria's shale - big resource, big challenges


Algeria's shale - big resource, big challenges

Report summary

Algeria has the third largest shale gas potential in the world but the play has yet to be tested and many operational challenges need to be overcome. Despite tax breaks and promising geological characteristics, Algerian shale developments face tough economics, and for the play to become viable there needs to be a dramatic shift in operational efficiency. With the size of the resource it is inevitable that Algeria will produce shale gas, but it will take time.
