ALGIERS, March 20 (Reuters) - Algerian state energy firm Sonatrach has replaced Chief Executive Amine Mazouzi after less than two years in the job, naming Abdelmoumen Ould Kadour to replace him, the energy ministry said in a statement on Monday.

The ministry gave no reason for the change.

Ould Kadour is an engineer who graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and headed U.S.-Algerian firm Brown & Root Condor in the 1990s.
