Proved reserves of natural gas reached 159 trillion cb ft in 2017 in Algeria, according to EIA. This is the same as in the previous year.
Historically, proved reserves of natural gas in Algeria reached an all time high of 162 trillion cb ft in 2007 and an all time low of 104 trillion cb ft in 1989. When compared to Algeria's main peers, proved reserves of natural gas in Libya amounted to 53.1 trillion cb ft, 0.051 trillion cb ft in Morocco, 0.090 trillion cb ft in Spain and 2.30 trillion cb ft in Tunisia in 2017.
Algeria has been ranked 11th within the group of 99 countries we follow in terms of proved reserves of natural gas, 2 places behind the position seen 10 years ago.
Proved reserves are estimated quantities of energy sources that the analysis of geological and engineering data demonstrates with reasonable certainty are recoverable under existing economic and operating conditions.
