Algerian oil and gas pipeline and field map (from mem-algeria.org)

The map below is a reduced size of the original, which is an oil and gas pipeline and field map of Algeria. It's hosted on the site mem-algeria.org and doesn't have any other credits on the map. (Not for use in navigation.)

MEM stands for Ministère de l’Energie et des Mines; this is an official map from that ministry of the Algerian government.
