Institutions & Energy Policy
The Ministry of Mines, Energy, and Water is responsible for energy policy, general organisation of the sector, the study and implementation of hydroelectric projects and regulation of the energy sector.
The Ministry of Economy and Finance supervises the National Office of Oil Products (ONAP).
EDM-SA (State 66%, IPS-Industrial Promotion Services 34%) is the national electricity company. It was created following the privatisation of EDM (Energie du Mali) in 2000. Initially the State had kept just 40%, with Bouygues (39%) and IPS (21%) holding the remainder, but following disputes with the State, Bouygues pulled out of the company in 2005.
All the oil products consumed in the country are imported, mainly from Senegal, Ivory Coast, and Niger. Oil product imports have doubled since 2010, reaching 1.8 Mt in 2020.
Oil product prices are regulated. They are revised on a monthly basis according to international prices, although the variations in international oil prices are not entirely reflected in motor fuel prices. A floating Tax on Petroleum Product Imports (TIPP) applies. The prices of gasoline and diesel were relatively stable in 2021 at US$1.25/l and U$1.10$/l, respectively.
Energy consumption per capita is low, at about 0.27 toe/capita, including 165 kWh of electricity (2020).
Energy consumption is dominated by biomass, which represented 65% of the total energy consumption in 2020 despite a declining share (-8 points since 2010). It is followed by oil with 32% and hydroelectricity and power imports with 2%.
Issues & Prospects
Several companies are active in the oil exploration sector, and especially in the Taoudenni basin, the most promising basin in Mali: Sipex (subsidiary of Sonatrach); a joint venture between Afex Global and Glencore; and a joint venture between Heritage Oil and Mali Oil Development.
