Tunisia-Tunisia is arranging 10-year gas supply agreement with Algeria

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

Since December 2019, the natural gas supply contract between the two countries has been completed, he told TAP, specifying that on Monday, March 23 he held talks with his Algerian counterpart, Mohamed Akeb, on the modalities of concluding a new contract as soon as possible.

Marzouk reassured 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 asserted 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.
