Total Energy Consumption
Energy consumption per capita is almost 1.4 toe, including 1020 kWh of electricity (2020).
Total energy consumption decreased to 2.0 Mtoe in 2019 and remained stable in 2020 after an 11%/year decrease between 2011 and 2015 and a rebound from 2016 to 2018. It increased ten-fold between 2000 and 2006 and slowed down to reach a peak in 2011 at 3.7 Mtoe, driven by gas consumption in industry.

Crude Oil Production
Production of crude oil and condensates has been decreasing rapidly since 2007 (by around 6%/year) to 8.8 Mt in 2020. It increased dramatically following the commissioning of the first field of Alba in 1996 and then the Zafiro field, reaching a peak of 19 Mt in 2007. About 85% of the production is in the form of crude oil and 15% as condensates. Crude oil production comes almost entirely from three fields - Zafiro, Ceiba, and Okume - while condensates come from the Alba field.

CO2 Fuel Combustion/CO2 Emissions
Equatorial Guinea submitted its NDC (Nationally Determined Contribution) in 2018. It set a GHG emissions reduction target of 20% by 2030 and 50% by 2050 compared to 2010. The revision of the NDC is currently underway.
CO2 emissions from fuel combustion stopped rising in 2012 and have decreased by 50% since then, reaching around 4.5 MtCO2 in 2020. They increased sharply between 2001 and 2012 due to the high development of gas in industry, but then dropped in line with gas consumption.
