Institutions & Energy Policy
The Ministry of Petroleum and Energy prepares and implements the country's energy policy and supervises the public energy companies.
The Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development looks after environmental issues. The Ministry of Finance and Budget plays an important part in the financing of investments and energy prices.
Senegal is historically very poor in energy resources, except for biomass. Forest cover is decreasing rapidly (43% of the country's land area in 2015, compared to 70% twenty years ago). Estimates of gas reserves in Senegal were revised upward to 214 bcm in 2018 following recent discoveries (they could even rise to 450 bcm).
Oil taxes represent a quarter of the State's budgetary resources and oil products are heavily taxed (70% in the case of gasoline, 60% in the case of diesel). Consequently, the country has the highest diesel and gasoline prices in Western Africa.
Per capita energy consumption is 0.29 toe, including approximately 270 kWh of electricity (2019).
Total energy consumption is growing rapidly (+3.6%/year, on average, since 2000) and reached 4.7 Mtoe in 2019, nearly twice its 2000 level.
In 2019, oil covered 57% of the country's energy needs, biomass (mainly wood) 35%, and coal 7%.
Issues & Prospects
Promising oil discoveries will turn the country into an oil producer. In 2017, the World Bank approved US$29m in financing to develop the oil sector, especially to help the government oversee oil and gas development and be more transparent in negotiations.
