Algeria, UK discuss energy co-operation

Algeria Energy Minister Chakib Khelil on Friday (March 26th) will conclude two days of talks in London with his British homologue, Algerian press reported. Khelil’s visit, which follows bilateral talks held earlier this month in London, aims at boosting co-operation in the fields of hydrocarbons and renewable energies.

 Algeria, already the UK’s third-largest provider of liquefied natural gas (LNG), could potentially use the planned trans-Saharan gas pipeline to double output to the country in the next few years, JournalDZ reported. The 4,128km pipeline is expected to send 20-30 billion cubic metres of gas from the Niger Delta, via Niger and Algeria, to Europe every year by 2015.
