The Algerian Minister of Energy, Mustapha Guitouni clarified that his country will start to supply Libya with electricity before the end of this year, pointing out that such a step would create many investment projects in the border areas with Libya.

The Head of the Algerian Energy Company "Sonelgaz" Mohammed Arqab, said earlier that talks between the General Electricity Company of Libya (GECOL) and the Algerian Energy Company aim to develop opportunities for partnership with the Sonelgaz group, which resulted in an agreement to start supplying Libya with electricity after connecting the electricity networks in each of Libya, Algeria and Tunisia.
