A 19.3% week-on-week increase in flows through the Maghreb-Europe pipeline from Algeria to Spain helped boost total North African gas deliveries by 3.1% in Week 43. Flows through the three other pipelines were virtually flat over the period. Total deliveries amounted to 772.2 million cubic metres, 10.8% below where they stood during the same week in 2017. Significant week-on-week changes are not expected now until temperatures drop in southern Europe, boosting gas demand.
