Diversifying offerings and ramping up production in order to meet both local and international energy demands

Global Platform

In an interview with Global Platform, Abdelmoumen Ould Kaddour, CEO, Sonatrach, speaks on how the global lower oil price environment has spurred the diversification of Algeria’s energy sector. Gas production in particular has accelerated, and the country has built the necessary infrastructure to export gas to new markets. In addition, the petrochemicals downstream industries have been targeted for development, and there are plans in place to utilise solar energy at oil and gas fields. As the country expands its energy capacities into new areas, partners will be key in sharing the risk across numerous endeavours.
