Tunisia has a small but flourishing oil and gas sector, which is supported by the efforts of a number of smaller companies alongside a few key mid-majors.
The country has some of the same geological structures as its larger neighbours, Algeria and Libya, although the scale of its prospects has been more limited to date. The country plays host to the Transmed (Enrico Mattei) pipeline running from Algeria to Italy and is able to supplement its own gas production with payment in kind from that link.
Tunisia is currently focusing on the development of its downstream sector, again with the support of foreign investors.
