Importing from Algeria

Algeria owes its distinction as the 49th largest export economy in the world to its oil and gas export earnings that contribute more that 95% of the total exports. The breakdown of the country’s top exports are as follows: crude petroleum ($30 billion), petroleum gas ($28 billion), refined petroleum ($9 billion), coal tar oil ($1 billion) and ammonia ($320 million.

These export commodities are shipped to Algeria’s export trading partners such as Spain ($11 billion), Italy ($7.9 billion), the United Kingdom ($6.7 billion), France ($5.8 billion) and the United States ($ 6 billion).
