Could Algeria Solve the Europe Gas Crisis?

Most of the European countries such as the UK, France, Germany, Spain, and Italy are heavily relied on oil and gas that mostly imported from the USA and Russia. As the Russian invasion of Ukraine has spread chaos throughout the world, and due to the condemnatory stance of European nations towards unjustifiable invasion, the smooth trade between European Union countries and Russia is in utter distress.

Not did only western countries put embargos on Russia, but Russia also threatened the western countries by slowing down the gas supplies to Europe. The winters are coming, and the demand for gas is soon going to escalate. However, the tensions owing to the war will not be at ease perhaps. In this scenario, the only option left for European countries is to diversify their import patterns vis-à-vis gas.
