Institutions & Energy Policy
The Ministry of Petroleum and Energy is in charge of the energy sector and coordinates the country's energy policy. The Ministry of Finance defines the taxation on energy products.
SHT, Société des Hydrocarbures du Tchad, is the public oil company.
Since its creation in 2006, it is in charge of implementing the oil policy and managing the hydrocarbons sector.
Oil production has been decreasing slightly since 2015 to 5 Mt in 2018. It had previously fallen by a factor of nearly 2 between 2005 (8.7 Mt) and 2014 (4.4 Mt). That decrease was due to technical difficulties and upwelling which led to the cessation of production on several fields. Production started in 2003.
The prices of motor fuels are set by the Government and are similar to those of neighbouring Sub Saharan African countries. In 2019, gasoline and diesel prices stood at US$0.89/l and US$0.95/l.

Issues & Prospects
In 2017, SHT started construction in the Kanem area of the Sedigui refinery, with a capacity of 2000 bbl/day, and of the Rig-Rig gas plant, with a capacity of 400 000 m3 of gas per day (0.15 bcm/year). It should be operational in 2020. Two 312 km pipelines will transport natural gas and butane to the capital city.
