Summer is over and it’s back to work at NARCO and in Algeria, Libya, and Mauritania. Algerian politics are all about Boutef whereas in Libya, politics are all but dead. Mauritania concluded legislative polls, but the big question of presidential succession is left unanswered. The security situation is a mixed bag across North Africa with the Islamic State back in Libya, but Algeria and Mauritania remaining calm. The oil and gas sector is rebounding in Libya, bustling in Nouakchott, and waiting for the green light in Algeria.
