Institutions & Energy Policy
The Ministry of Water and Energy is in charge of the design and implementation of the national energy policy.
Victoria Oil & Gas, through its subsidiary Gaz du Cameroun (GDC), is developing the Logbaba field, which started producing in 2012. It also owns and operates the Logbaba gas processing plant. With an investment of US$110m, Victoria now holds the totality of the project and a production licence of 25 years.
Cameroon has significant gas reserves (149 bcm, end of 2019), but modest oil reserves (34 Mt). Cameroon has the second greatest hydroelectric potential in Africa: 23 GW of technical potential, 40% of which is exploitable under good economic conditions (105 TWh/year). Wood reserves are abundant, especially in the southern part of the country.
Arsel sets electricity tariffs on the basis of principles which allow the operator normal returns in normal conditions of activity. Tariffs are generally reviewed every five years, or in case of any changes which substantially affect the economic, financial and technical environment in which the contracts were granted.
Total energy consumption per capita is 0.4 toe, of which 255 kWh is electricity (2018).
Total energy consumption grew very rapidly between 2013 and 2016 (11%/year) to each 9.3 Mtoe and has remained stable since then.
Issues & Prospects
The development of LPG produced from natural gas should limit deforestation in the short term and enable LPG exports to Europe in the long term.

In the Cameroon energy market report you will find the following tables:
- Economic Indicators: Annual historical data including population, GDP growth, imports and exports, inflation rate, energy security and efficiency indicators, CO2 emissions.
- Supply Indicators: Historical data including oil and gas reserves, electric and refining capacity, energy production, power production and external trade. All are detailed by energy source
- Demand Indicators: Historical data including consumption per inhabitant, consumption trends, total consumption by energy source, final consumption by energy source and sector, and electricity consumption by sector.
- Energy Balances: Single table displaying the overall energy industry balance per annum, also graphically displayed by energy sub-segment.
The Cameroon energy market data since 1990 and up to 2018 is included in the Excel file accompanying the Cameroon country report.
It showcases the historical evolution, allowing users to easily work with the data.
Key Data included in the excelsheet:
- Economic indicators: Annual historical economic indicators, energy security, energy efficiency and CO2 emissions.
- Supply indicators: Annual historical reserves, capacity, production and external trade (imports(+) exports(-) balance).
- Demand indicators: Annual historical consumption per capita, consumption trends, total consumption, final consumption (per energy and per sector) and electricity consumption total and per sector.
- Energy Balance: total and per energy.
- Cameroon Energy Prices: In addition to the analysis provided on the report we also provided a data set which includes historical details on the Cameroon energy prices for the follow items: price of premium gasoline (taxes incl.), price of diesel (taxes incl.), price of electricity in industry (taxes incl.), price of electricity for households (taxes incl.), price of natural gas in industry (taxes incl.), prices of natural gas for households (taxes incl.), spot price of Brent and CO2 emissions (from fuel combustion).
The Cameroon country report is complemented with a national power generation dashboard (excel file) from our Power Plant Tracker Service.
Data included in the excelsheet:
- New capacities: Current power mix, installed capacity at date, capacity under construction and under development.
- Power Sector Performances: Historical data on installed capacity, power generation, thermal power plants inputs, average thermal power plant efficiency, CO2 emissions of the power sector, carbon factor of the power sector.
