Algeria is amongst the leading oil producers and exporters worldwide. It is Africa's leading natural gas producer and has the third largest oil reserves on the continent. Algeria's oil and gas sector creates significant export value and impressively contributes to the economy of the country. To increase the value of its vast hydrocarbon resources and attract international oil companies, Algeria amended its legislation and published the law n.19-13 governing hydrocarbon activities on 11 December 2019, significantly reforming its legislation in this area.

Organized by the MENA Chapter, the webinar speakers will discuss the legal and tax framework currently in force in Algeria and the advantages to foreign investors. An overview of the mining opportunities in the oil & gas and mining sectors will be presented as well as the types of medium term investments which could be contemplated. Finally, the Italian oil and gas company, ENI, will explain how they have developed marginal fields in Algeria and how the new hydrocarbon law can favour the expansion of this type of activity.

Please note that this event will be held in French.
