    Algeria’s decision on supply of gas

    Question for written answer  E-005456/2021
    to the Commission
    Rule 138
    Dominique Bilde (ID)

    Since 1996, Algeria has supplied Spain and Portugal with around 10 billion cubic metres of natural gas per year via the Maghreb-Europe Gas Pipeline[1], which passes through Morocco. Since 2011, it has also sent gas to Spain via a submarine pipeline called Medgaz, which has a maximum capacity of 8 billion cubic metres per year[2].

    However, on 27 October 2021, Algeria confirmed that it would stop exporting gas via the pipeline that passes through Morocco, as the supply agreement would not be renewed. This decision was taken whilst relations between Morocco and Algeria remain tense, due in particular to the issue of Western Sahara.
