Institutions & Energy Policy
The Ministry of Infrastructures and Energy supervises the energy sector.
The National Agency of Natural Resources (AKBN) is in charge of implementing the energy policy and regulating the hydrocarbon sector and mining activities.
An Energy Regulatory Entity (ERE), in charge of regulating the energy market and electricity prices, was set up in 1995.
Bankers Petroleum accounts for around 90% of gas production (2020).
Albgaz owns all gas infrastructures (10 km of operational gas pipelines and 500 km of idled ones). The company was spun off from Albpetrol in 2017 to take over Albpetrol's gas activities and was certified as the gas transmission and distribution system operator.
Oil production has fallen by 27% since 2014, from 1.4 Mt to 1 Mt in 2019, due to low international prices that cut investments in the sector. Most of this production is exported (65% in 2019). Production tripled between 2004 and 2014.
Gasoline and diesel prices are quite similar and follow global trends in oil prices. They decreased in 2020 after an increasing trend over 2016-2019. Oil prices used to be much lower than in the EU; the gap with the EU average has been reduced since 2000, from 41% in 2000 to 1% for gasoline and from 62% to 7% for diesel in 2019.
Consumption per capita is much lower than the EU average, at approximately 0.8 toe (73% below the EU average), including nearly 2 400 kWh of electricity (57% below the EU average) (2019).
Total energy consumption has been decreasing slightly since 2017 to 2.3 Mtoe in 2019, after rapid growth between 1995 and 2005 (+5%/year) and slower growth until 2017 (+0.7%/year).
Issues & Prospects
According to ERE, electricity consumption is expected to increase by an average of 2.3%/year between 2020 and 2024 (to 8.2 TWh). Meanwhile, power generation should rise by 3.4%/year to 7.1 TWh, enabling a 3.4%/year cut in imports.
