Tunisia: Algeria says ready to increase its electricity exports

The Algerian group Sonelgaz, historical operator in the supply of electric and gas energies, is ready to increase its exports of electricity to Tunisia.

Algeria, which currently exports 500 megawatts of electricity per day to Tunisia, is ready to increase the quantities in the event of an increase in demand,” CEO of Sonelgaz, Mourad Adjal told the Algerian news agency APS.

Algerian Minister of Energy and Mines, Mohamed Arkab, had said two months earlier that Algeria was working with Tunisia to identify its energy needs in order to avoid the crises of the summer season.

Indeed, a few weeks after signing an agreement with Italy to boost exports of Algerian gas through the trans-Mediterranean pipeline, Tunisia has begun talks to have higher volumes of gas.

Tunisian Minister of Industry, Energy and Mines, Neila Nouira had visited Algiers at the end of the last month for talks with her Algerian counterpart but also with representatives of Sonelgaz and Sonatrach.
