Crude Oil Production
Oil production increased by 25% in 2018 thanks to several new fields (Moho Nord deep offshore, Lianzi and Nené Marine). Production had previously been decreasing between 2010 and 2016, following a rapid increase between 2007 and 2010 (+40%) with the start of several fields: the first deep offshore field, Moho Bilondo, in 2008 (90 000 bbl/d), the Awa-Paloukou and Ikalou-Ikalou fields (peak production of 13 000 bbl/d for the two fields) in 2008, and the Azurite field (40 000 bbl/d) in 2009.

CO2 Fuel Combustion/CO2 Emissions
CO2 emissions from fuel combustion increased strongly between 2002 and 2015, by 15%/year on average, and have decreased since then due to fuel shortages, reaching around 2.9 Mt in 2018. Emissions are mainly from industry (51%), followed by transport (47%), and households, tertiary, agriculture (2%).
