Energy companies remain wary, though, after deadly 2013 attack on natural gas facility. One year ago, a terrorist attack on a natural gas facility in southern Algeria led to the deaths of 67 people after Algerian troops tried to rescue hundreds of hostages taken by an al-Qaeda-linked group.

Now, for the first time in three years, Algeria has opened a new set of potential oil and gas fields to international bidders. The bidding round was launched on January 21 by Algeria's state-owned oil licensing body, Alnaft.

"The tender covers 31 concessions, including 17 in the southwest and five in the north," Sid Ali Betata, the head of Alnaft, announced at a press conference. The bid round also includes 17 shale gas concessions, and seven on which discoveries have already been made by the state energy company, Sonatrach, said Betata.
