Analysis - Energy Sector Highlights

  • Algeria relies heavily on revenue generated from the hydrocarbon sector, comprising approximately one-third of total government revenue in 2016, according to the latest estimates from the International Monetary Fund (IMF).[1] The Algerian government’s dependence on crude oil for economic growth increases its vulnerability to crude oil price volatility.
  • The government’s 2016–2019 economic plan reduces its exposure to crude oil price volatility by diversifying its exports (hydrocarbons accounted for more than 90% of total exports in 2016) and by reducing its domestic energy consumption growth (of which hydrocarbons is the primary fuel source) to 3% in 2030.[2]
