Tunisia negotiating a new 10-year gas supply contract with Algeria

Tunisia and Algeria are negotiating a new contract for the supply of gas to Tunisia for a period from 2020 to 2030, Minister of Energy, Mining and Energy Transition Mongi Marzouk said on Tuesday.

The natural gas supply contract between the two countries ended in December 2019, reminded to TAP, specifying that he had held talks with his Algerian counterpart, Mohamed Akeb on March 23, on the modalities of concluding a new contract as soon as possible.

Marzouk wanted to reassure about the energy situation in the country, especially with regard to the supply of Algerian gas, which accounts for two-thirds of gas consumption in Tunisia.

He affirmed that currently his department collaborates with the Ministry of Finance and the Tunisian Company of Refining Industries (STIR) in order to acquire a sufficient quantity of all oil products to cover the consumption of three months.
