Total Energy Consumption
Energy consumption per capita is almost 1.5 toe, including 1030 kWh of electricity (2019).
Total energy consumption decreased to 2.2 Mtoe in 2019 after a 16%/year decrease between 2012 and 2016 and a rebound in 2017 and 2018. It increased seven-fold between 2001 and 2006 and slowed down to reach a peak in 2012 at 3.6 Mtoe, driven by gas consumption in industry.

Crude Oil Production
Production of crude oil and condensates has been decreasing rapidly since 2008 (by around 8%/year) to 6.9 Mt in 2019. It increased dramatically following the commissioning of the first field of Alba in 1996 and then the Zafiro field, reaching a peak of 16 Mt in 2004. About 80% of the production is in the form of crude oil and 20% 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.
CO2 emissions from fuel combustion stopped rising in 2019 and stood at around 5.3 MtCO2. They increased sharply between 2001 and 2012 due to the high development of gas in industry, but then dropped by 55% between 2012 and 2016, following a drop in gas consumption.
