  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Ministry of Water and Energy is in charge of the design and implementation of the national energy policy.

  • Energy Companies


    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.

  • Energy Supply


    Gas production doubled in 2018 to 1.3 bcm thanks to the start-up of LNG production. Previously, it had grown very rapidly, 18%/year since 2011, with the start-up of production at the Logbaba field (reserves estimated at 6 bcm of gas and 2.8 Mbl of condensate).

  • Energy Prices


    The prices of oil products in Cameroon are slightly higher than the regional average.

  • Energy Consumption

    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


    According to the long-term electricity sector development plan (PDSE-2035), electricity demand is expected to reach between24.4 TWh (median growth scenario) and 33.4 TWh (high growth scenario) in 2035, mainly driven by a rapid growth in industry (7-9%/year).
