Crude Oil Production

Oil production slightly increased to 17.5 Mt in 2019 (+2.2%) after the 22% rise in 2018 due to the commissioning of 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 (+12%/year) 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 surged between 2002 and 2015, by 15%/year on average, and have decreased since then due to fuel shortages, reaching around 2.9 Mt in 2019. Most of the increase came from industry (+31%/year over 2002-2019), which now accounts for 52% of CO2 emissions (3% in 2002), overtaking transport (+7%/year over 2002-2019 to 47% of emissions in 2019, from 83% in 2002).
