Algeria and India have agreed to develop their cooperation and their partnership in the energy field, notably in the commercialisation of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG).

This came out in a press release issued in Algiers following talks between the Algerian energy and mines minister Chakib Khelil and the visiting Indian oil minister Murli Deora.


The discussions, which were later extended to include the two countries’ delegations, focused on the possibility to bolster the bilateral cooperation projects in the field of the exploration and the production of hydrocarbons as well as in the export of Algerian LNG and LPG towards India, a big consumer of oil and gas.


The Algerian energy minister said that the Algerian-Indian cooperation could also extend to include the fields of engineering, training and scientific research.


Mr Chakib Khelil also advocated a greater flow of exchanges between the Algerian oil institute (IAP) and the Indian institutes.


It should be noted that the Indian oil minister was accompanied during his visit to Algeria by a large delegation including the managers of Indian oil Corporation, Oil and Natural Gas Commission, Gail India Limited, India Oil Corporation and Engineers India Limited.
