    Morocco says keen to keep Algeria-Spain gas pipeline open

    23 Aug 2021

    Morocco wants to keep open a pipeline supplying Algerian gas via the kingdom to consumers in Europe, a senior official has said, despite a downturn in relations between the North African rivals.

    The operating contract for the Moroccan section of the Maghreb-Europe Gas Pipeline, which links fields in Algeria with Spain, runs out in October.

    There had been concern its renewal might fall foul of the latest spat between the two countries.

    'Morocco's desire to retain this export route has been expressed clearly and consistently at all levels for more than three years,' the head of the National Office for Hydrocarbons and Mines, Amina Benkhadra, told state media.
