In a context marked by the challenges of energy transition and sustainable development, Morocco is taking a major step in the consolidation of its natural gas sector. According to official data from the Ministry of Energy Transition and Sustainable Development, the country is approaching the conclusion of the process of developing its legal and regulatory framework for this vital sector.

This information, revealed after a series of consultations and deliberations with various stakeholders, consolidates long-term work undertaken to modernize and regulate the natural gas sector in Morocco. Indeed, in-depth discussions took place with the Competition Council, thus highlighting the importance given to the opinions of stakeholders in this process.

According to a written response from Leila Benali, Minister of Energy Transition and Sustainable Development, to a question asked by Driss Sentissi, president of the Haraki group in the House of Representatives, the bill relating to the natural gas sector (Law no. 17-94) has reached its final drafting stages and will soon be transmitted to the General Secretariat of the Government.

The main objective of this legislative initiative is to strengthen the national natural gas market while regulating its various activities. This approach is part of a global vision aimed at consolidating the country’s energy infrastructure and promoting its long-term sustainability.

The process of developing this legislative framework was characterized by broad consultation involving all stakeholders in the natural gas sector in Morocco. After its publication in December 2017 on the website of the General Secretariat of the Government, the bill was thoroughly examined and debated, demonstrating a deep commitment to transparency and democratic participation.

The proactive approach taken by Morocco to develop its natural gas sector paves the way for a promising future for the country. This strategy is part of a broader vision aimed at modernizing Morocco’s energy infrastructure while promoting sustainable development. Morocco benefits from considerable reserves of natural gas, particularly with the recent discovery of significant deposits in the Gharb basin. These resources could be enough to cover national natural gas needs for the next 15 years, thereby reducing the country’s dependence on imports and strengthening its energy independence.

Natural gas presents a series of significant benefits for Morocco, ranging from energy security to promoting a sustainable energy transition.

National production of natural gas constitutes an essential pillar of the country’s energy security. By reducing dependence on imports, Morocco can guard against unforeseen fluctuations in international oil prices, thereby ensuring economic stability and reliable energy supplies for its citizens and industry.

However, the natural gas sector offers considerable potential to stimulate Morocco’s economic growth. In addition to creating jobs in gas production, transportation and distribution, this industry can attract foreign investment and encourage the development of related infrastructure such as pipelines and processing facilities. In addition, domestic production of natural gas strengthens the country’s trade balance by reducing expenses related to energy imports.
