Can Algeria’s new Hydrocarbon Law revive activity?

Report summary

Algeria published a new Hydrocarbon Law in December 2019. The new law offers lower royalties, lower taxes and greater contractual flexibility, all designed to tempt back investors. In this insight, we analyse the key fiscal changes and how Algeria now compares with its neighbours. Do the new terms affect existing production and deter investments in economic projects. Will the new terms be enough to bring companies back to Algeria?
