Slovenia hopes to sign an agreement for the purchase of natural gas from Algeria later this month, prime minister Robert Golob said.

“The contract is fully coordinated and initialed,” Golob said in a video file posted on the website of public broadcaster RTV on Tuesday.

According to Slovenian media reports, the contract will have a validity of three years and envisages the purchase of 300 million cubic meters of natural gas annually, about a third of Slovenia’s demand.

“Next week there will be on a visit to Algiers and then things will be formally closed,” Golob said.

According to the plans, the Algerian gas will be imported to Slovenia via the Trans-Mediterranean Pipeline gas pipeline linking Tunisia to Italy.
