Slovenia: Algeria to increase its gas supply to Slovenia

Algeria and Slovenia have signed several cooperation agreements, one of which involves enhancing Algeria’s gas exports to Slovenia. 

Slovenia’s largest gas supplier Geoplin and Algeria’s state-owned energy company Sonatrach signed an annex to their gas supply contract under which Algeria’s natural gas supply to Slovenia will increase by an additional 200 million cubic meters per year or by more than 66% starting from 2026, after the current contract has expired.

The signing ceremony was attended by Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune and Slovenian Prime Minister Robert Golob. As per the terms of the agreement, Algeria will ramp up its natural gas exports to Slovenia through the gas pipeline that connects Algeria to Italy via the Mediterranean Sea.

Minister of the Environment, Climate and Energy Bojan Kumer, who accompanied Golob during the visit, said in this way Algerian gas would meet roughly 50% of Slovenia’s needs, up from roughly 30%.

The two countries also inked a cooperation agreement to grant both countries’ diplomatic passport holders short-term visa exemption.

In addition, a memorandum of understanding was signed between the two sides regarding artificial intelligence.
