North Africa Round Up (Jan. 2015)
Yet again North African countries are following different courses as 2015 gets underway. Even so, with the exception of Libya, whose oil and gas problems are much more profound, the question of shale gas exploitation is an emerging theme. Likewise, all North African countries are grappling with jihadi activity of one kind and another. Libya, Tunisia, and Algeria, however, are as politically divergent as could be. Morocco has been quiet politically and in the oil and gas sector as well. Hopefully, we’ll revisit it in next month’s Round Up. As always, please don't hesitate to get in touch about any and all of the below.
