  • 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 Supply


    After a 68% decrease between 2006 and 2014, oil production rose by 100% between 2014 and 2017, to reach 2 Mt. In 2018, crude oil output decreased by 5% to 1.9 Mt.

    Three offshore oil fields are in production: Baobab, Lion and Espoir.

    The Baobab field was set into production in 2005, but does not currently produce at full capacity. It produced 50 000 bbl/d in 2016.

  • Energy Prices


    Prices of motor fuels remain under the supervision of the State. Gasoline and diesel prices increased by 10.4% and 5.4%, respectively, in 2018, after the government approved new price increases. Previously, the government decreased fuel prices in 2014, following the decline in international oil prices.

  • Energy Consumption

    Energy consumption per inhabitant was around 0.42 toe in 2018, including 260 kWh of electricity.
