Total Energy Consumption

Total energy consumption per capita amounted to 1.6 toe/capita in 2019. Electricity consumption per capita was 1 095 kWh in 2019. It remains much lower than in neighbouring countries (1 760 kWh per capita in Jordan in 2018 and 3 040 kWh in Turkey in 2019).

Total energy consumption increased rapidly since 2015 (+8%/year), to reach 64.5 Mtoe in 2019.

Oil accounts for most of the country's total energy consumption, with 87% in 2019; the remainder is supplied by gas (12%) and hydropower (1%).

Crude Oil Production

Oil production has been increasing rapidly since 2010 (+8%/year) with a major increase in 2016 (+28%) and reached 232 Mt in 2019. This rise was mainly due to an increased output at fields in southern Iraq and in the Iraqi Kurdistan Region, which more than offset disrupted volumes in the north.

CO2 Fuel Combustion/CO2 Emissions

In December 2015, the country submitted its Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDC) for the COP21. Iraq's INDC includes both conditional and non-conditional targets to reduce GHG emissions by up to 14% below its business-as-usual (BAU) in 2035. The emissions reductions targeted over 2020-2035 should reach about 90 MtCO2eq.
