  • Oil aimed at revitalizing its gas potential in 2021.
  • Perenco and Eni are the leading producers of oil and natural gas, respectively.
  • Energie Electrique du Congo (E2C) is the national electricity company.
  • Oil production has been declining since a peak in 2018.
  • The power capacity has nearly quadrupled since 2010.
  • Total energy consumption has been growing more slowly since 2020, after a very rapid increase between 2010 and 2019.
  • Several dams are planned, including the very controversial Sounda Gorge project (600 MW).

  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    Congo is located in Sub-Saharan Africa, and is bordered by Gabon, Cameroon, the Central African Republic, and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Its capital city is called Brazzaville. Its main resources are hydrocarbons, wood, and minerals.

  • Energy Companies


    Eni is the leading natural gas producer, with a production of 2bcm in 2022 (+45%).

  • Energy Supply


    Oil production has decreased by 19% since 2019 to 14.4 Mt in 2021; it rose by 21% in 2018 with the commissioning of several new fields (Moho Nord deep offshore, Lianzi, and Nené Marine).

  • Energy Consumption

    In 2021, total energy consumption per inhabitant was around 0.6 toe (0.2 toe without biomass), in line with the Sub-Saharan Africa average, including 270 kWh of electricity (around 20% below the regional average).


  • Issues & Prospects


    Congo aims to raise its crude oil production to 300 kb/d in 2023 (+10% compared to 2022).
