Algeria witnesses increased oil and gas output

Jun 29, 2016 12:00 AM

Algeria’s oil and gas output are coming back to growth after years of stagnation.

The state energy company, Sonatrach , says there has been increased production at many fields.

The North African country has struggled to draw in foreign energy companies to help it to explore new fields.

Oil output will reach 69 million tonnes in 2016, against 67 million tonnes last year, while gas production will rise to 132 billion cubic meters.

A drop in European gas demand has affected Algerian exports that have also been squeezed by  slow production at mature fields.
