Although Algeria has exported gas to the European Union for half a century, internal conditions in the country may transform it into an importer over the next decade.


Both parties would rather maintain the status quo, in part because Algeria wants the income from these exports and also because the EU wants a diverse number of suppliers in light of the tense relations with Russia. However, the success of this endeavour depends on internal reforms and better investment conditions in Algeria.


Moreover, on the EU side, there should be an emphasis on a reduction of domestic gas consumption as well as better access to Algerian gas throughout the continent via market integration with the Iberian Peninsula.
