Total Energy Consumption
Overall per capita energy consumption is around 0.5 toe. Per capita electricity consumption is approximately 322 kWh (2018).
Total energy consumption has been decreasing since a peak in 2014 (17.4 Mtoe) because of the recession to 15 Mtoe in 2018 (-15% compared to 2014). Before, it increased by 10%/year between 2006 and 2014, driven by the demand from households and services.

Crude Oil Production
Oil production has decreased by 17% since 2015 (of which 8.5% in 2018), from 89.5 Mt to 74 Mt in 2018. It increased very rapidly as from 2000, reaching its peak level of 96 Mt in 2008 (multiplied by a factor of 2.6) and fluctuated around 80-90 Mt until 2015.
Offshore blocks are divided into three bands: shallow water blocks 0-13 (band A), deepwater blocks 14-30 (band B), and ultra-Deepwater blocks 31-40 (band C). Four blocks contributed 3/4 of the total production in 2018: Block 17 (36%), Blocks 0 and 15 (16% each), and Block 15/06 (9%).

CO2 Fuel Combustion/CO2 Emissions
In 2015, Angola submitted its Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC) with the commitment to reduce its GHG emissions by up to 35% by 2030 as compared to a BAU scenario. Under a conditional mitigation scenario, the country could further reduce its emissions trajectory by 50% below the BAU scenario. Identified mitigation actions focus mainly on the development of renewables for electricity generation and on reforestation. Angola has not yet ratified the Paris Agreement.
