  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Ministry of Industry and Trade (MOIT) supervises the energy sector. Within the MOIT, the General Directorate of Energy (GDE) administers the energy sector through three Departments: Electricity and Renewable Energy, Petroleum and Coal, and Energy Saving and Sustainable Development.

  • Energy Companies


    PVN, PetroVietnam, the state-owned oil and gas company, dominates the oil sector. It operates through its various subsidiaries and affiliates like PetroVietnam Exploration and Production (PVEP) and PV OIL.

  • Energy Supply


    The marketed production of natural gas has been decreasing since 2015 by 3%/year to 9.5 bcm in 2018. It grew very rapidly between 2002 and 2010, from 2.8 bcm to 9.8 bcm (+19%/year, on average), following the commissioning in 2002 of the Nam Con Son field. Production growth then slowed down (about 3%/year) until 2015.

  • Energy Prices


    The gas price for power generation is regulated by the Government: this price has been rising since 2014.

  • Energy Consumption

    Energy consumption per capita is low, at 0.9 toe and 1 900 kWh for electricity in 2018 (vs 1.4 toe and 2 500 kWh on average in Asia).

    Since 2000, total energy consumption has increased at the significant rate of 6.3%/year, reaching 87 Mtoe in 2018. The consumption of coal and electricity has grown very quickly since 2000: by 14% and 13%/year, respectively.

  • Issues & Prospects

    According to "The Energy Development Planning in Vietnam to 2025 with a vision up to 2035", the total primary energy supply in Vietnam is expected to grow by 5.3%/year between 2016 and 2025 and by 4.8%/year between 2016 and 2035, increasing from 80 Mtoe in 2015 to 136 Mtoe in 2025 and 218 Mtoe in 2035.
