Decree No. 2013-921 July 1, 2013 Decree No. 2013-921 July 1, 2013, on the Organization and functioning of the Ministry of energy and Mines.

REPORT of PRESENTATION in the context of the rationalization of administrative structures, the option was made to the Ministry of energy and Mines to consolidate all branches under the Energies into one.

However, this grouping of structures did not achieve the objectives because of some red.
Also, it appeared wiser to reorganize the directions taking into account specific tasks; Thus, for the sake of effectiveness and efficiency and taking into account the activities of the upstream and downstream oil, it is more appropriate to restore the Direction of hydrocarbons and domestic fuel.

-the management of hydrocarbons and domestic fuel.
Such is the economy of the draft decree.
