  • Oil and gas production should be boosted with the new licences awarded in the 2019 bidding round, despite the Covid-19 crisis.
  • ExxonMobil, the largest oil producer, plans to sell its assets in the country.
  • Marathon is the main gas producer.
  • Crude oil production is decreasing rapidly. Gas production has decreased by 40% since 2017.
  • Total energy consumption per capita is rather high compared to the other sub-Saharan African countries.
  • Equatorial Guinea plans to expand its natural gas production and to become a regional hub.
  • The commissioning of the 200 MW Sendje hydropower plant will increase the capacity by 60% in 2022.

  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    Equatorial Guinea is a small country consisting of two main parts: the island of Bioko, in the Gulf of Guinea, which is where the country's capital Malabo is located; and a mainland region that is bordered by Cameroon to the north and by Gabon to the south and east.

    The Ministry of Industry and Energy oversees the development and implementation of energy policies.

  • Energy Companies


    Segesa, Equatorial Guinea Electricity Company (62% State owned, 38% Spanish company Infinsa) is the national electric utility. In 2013 the company was unbundled.

  • Energy Supply


    Production of crude oil and condensates has been decreasing rapidly since 2007 (by around 6%/year) to 8.8 Mt in 2020. It increased dramatically following the commissioning of the first field of Alba in 1996 and then the Zafiro field, reaching a peak of 19 Mt in 2007. About 85% of the production is in the form of crude oil and 15% as condensates.

  • Energy Consumption

    Energy consumption per capita is almost 1.4 toe, including 1020 kWh of electricity (2020).
