Algeria threatens to cut gas supply to Spain

Algeria’s Energy Ministry threatened on Wednesday to cut off gas supplies to Spain in case any amount of gas exported to that country finishes up in a different destination than the specified by the contract, TeleTrader reported.

According to the ministry’s remarks, if this occurs, it would constitute a breach of contract and could lead to the termination of the agreements between the state-owned energy company Sonatrach and its Spanish customer.

Earlier, Algeria had received a message from Spain informing it of the decision to allow the reversal of gas flow through the Maghreb-Europe pipeline, apparently to supply gas to Morocco.
