Exploitation of Shale Gas in Algeria not for Tomorrow

Source: Algeria Times 5/27/2014, Location: Africa

President Bouteflika’s agreement to launch exploration of shale gas operations should not be interpreted as a green light for immediate exploitation but as an evaluation phase of Algeria’s unconventional potential, say experts and officials interviewed by the Algerian press agency APS.

Former CEO of Sonatrach, Abdelmajid Attar, said that the program of 11 drill of shale gas approved by the Council of Ministers "is an authorization for Sonatrach to lead a simple technical and financial evaluation campaign of gas production opportunities."

Reading the decision of the Council of Ministers by Mr. Attar falls away from most of the comments and analyzes recently published by the national press which have interpreted the recent measures as a green light to the exploitation of shale.
