Total Energy Consumption
Energy consumption per capita is almost 1.4 toe, including around 1080 kWh of electricity (2018).
Total energy consumption was stable in 2017 and 2018 (1.9 Mtoe in 2018) after a 16%/year decrease between 2012 and 2016. It increased seven-fold between 2001 and 2006 and slowed down to reach a peak in 2012 at 3.6 Mtoe, mainly driven by gas consumption in industry.

Crude Oil Production
Production of crude oil and condensates has been decreasing rapidly since 2008 (by around 7%/year) to 7.6 Mt in 2018. It increased dramatically following the commissioning of the first field of Alba in 1996 and then the Zafiro field, reaching a peak of 16.2 Mt in 2004. About 85% of the production is in the form of crude oil and 15% are condensates. Crude oil production comes almost entirely from three fields - Zafiro, Ceiba, and Okume - while condensate comes 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 are stable at around 4.4 MtCO2. They increased sharply between 2001 and 2012 due to the high development of gas in industry, but then were halved in four years, following a drop in gas consumption.
