What next for Algeria after Bouteflika?

Report summary

Political stability continues to evade Algeria as mass protests show no sign of abating. The political turmoil comes at a critical time for Algeria’s oil and gas sector, which has stagnated over the past decade. So far, there has been no impact on oil and gas production. The outlook for Algeria’s upstream sector is ultimately negative for the remainder of 2019 and much of 2020 irrespective of whether the country’s current transitional leadership can outlast the protest movement. Recent personnel changes will not counter the political disruption which will add to sectoral inertia, tempering expectations for fiscal reform.
