With market data and continuous follow-up of markets news, this report brings clear and concise insights with which to tackle national energy challenges and opportunities. Browse the tabs below for a detailed table of contents, the list of graphs and tables, and details on the data files.


  • Côte d'Ivoire aims for renewables to represent 45% of the electricity mix in 2030.
  • The updated NDC increased the GHG emission reduction target to 33% by 2030.
  • Most of natural gas is produced by the Foxtrot consortium, while CNR accounts for 94% of crude oil output.
  • The power sector is dominated by CIPREL and Azito Energy (60% of total production).
  • Gas production is growing regularly.
  • Gas covers around 70% of the power mix.
  • Gasoline and diesel prices increased by 15% in 2020.
  • Biomass represents 60% of total consumption.
  • The electrification rate increased from 34% in 2011 to 94% in 2020.
  • A capacity of around 800 MW should be commissioned in 2022.
  • The 700 MW San-Pedro coal power plant was cancelled.

  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Ministry of Petroleum, Energy and Renewable Energies is responsible for the implementation and monitoring of the energy policy through two directorates (hydrocarbons and energy). It oversees the state-owned energy companies.

    The Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development is in charge of climate policy and renewables.

  • Energy Companies


    Foxtrot (an affiliate of Bouygues) operates the CI-27 block (Foxtrot), which accounts for 2/3 of the country's natural gas output (around 1.8 bcm in 2020, +13%). The company holds a 24% participating interest in the block, alongside Petroci (40%), Seci (24%), and Enerci (12%).

    The other gas producers are CNR (26% of total gas output) and Petroci (8%).

  • Energy Supply


    In 2020, crude oil production dropped to 1.5 Mt (-17%). Previously, it had been growing very rapidly (14%/year), to reach 1.8 Mt in 2019. Most of Ivory Coast's oil is produced from the CI-40 block (Baobab) with 21 kb/d in 2020 (-21%, 72% of total output). The drastic decrease in the Baobab field was due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the depletion of the field.

  • Energy Prices


    In 2013, the country adopted an automatic fuel pricing mechanism, which aims at transmitting international oil price fluctuations to domestic retail prices, while smoothing fluctuations in pump prices.

    Following international prices, gasoline and diesel prices increased by 15% in 2021 to reach US$1.13/l and decreased between 2018 and 2020 (by 3.7% and 2.3%, respectively).

  • Energy Consumption

    Energy consumption per inhabitant was around 0.41 toe in 2020 (-15% since 2013), which is higher than in Senegal (0.27 toe) and Ghana (0.39 toe), but lower than in Nigeria (0.79 toe). Per capita electricity consumption has increased by 27% since 2013 to 291 kWh, which is higher than in Nigeria (140 kWh) and Senegal (275 kWh), but much lower than in Ghana (485 kWh).

  • Issues & Prospects

    The IMF expects sustained economic growth at more than 6% for the next 5 years.
