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.
Nowadays, there is no oil production. Supplies are covered by imports of either crude oil or refined products. In 2021, Senegal imported 1 Mt of crude oil and 1.7 Mt of oil products.
Oil taxes represent around 10% of the State's budgetary resources and oil products are heavily taxed. Consequently, the country has the highest diesel and gasoline prices in Western Africa.
Per capita energy consumption is 0.31 toe, including approximately 286 kWh of electricity (2021). The population increased by 2.8% in 2021, following the same annual trend as in the last decade.
Total primary energy consumption is growing rapidly (+2.7%/year, on average, since 2010) and reached 5.3 Mtoe in 2021, more than twice its 2000 level.
Issues & Prospects
Large gas resources were discovered in the Grand Tortue Ahmeyim (GTA) gas field in 2014 between Senegal and Mauritania, that are estimated to hold around 425 bcm of gas (15 Tcf). The governments of Senegal and Mauritania signed an agreement in 2018 to equally split resources, taxes and revenues. On the Senegalese side, BP (60% stake), Kosmos (30%), and Petrosen (10%) are developing the field.
