Total Energy Consumption
Total consumption of energy per capita amounts to 4.5 toe (2020), i.e. three times higher than the global average. Per capita electricity consumption reached 6.3 MWh in 2020.

Crude Oil Production
Oil production dropped by around 9% in 2020 following the OPEC+ quota and reached 43.5 Mt. Previously, it had remained stable between 2015 and 2019. It increased rapidly from 2009 to 2015 (4.4%/year) as a result of enhanced oil recovery techniques and the development of new fields, in particular Western Bukhad and Makhaizna. From 2001 to 2007, oil production declined due to maturing oil fields, dropping from a peak of 50 Mt in 2001 to 38 Mt.
Oman has two refineries: Mina Al-Fahal (106 kb/d) and Sohar, the capacity of which increased from 116 to 198 kb/d in 2019.

Renewable in % Electricity Production
In 2020, OPWP revised its renewable energy development plan, which now aims to reach 3 GW of renewables by 2025, to cover 16% of the power generation (2.5 GW end of 2021). By 2030, Oman aims to reach 30% of renewables in power generation.

CO2 Fuel Combustion/CO2 Emissions
Oman submitted its second NDC in July 2021, setting an unconditional GHG emission reduction target of 4% and a conditional reduction target up to 7% of the BAU scenario by 2030. Under its BAU scenario, Oman estimates GHG emissions at around 125 MtCO2eq by 2030; the 7% cut would limit GHG emissions to 116 MtCO2eq (up from 2% in its first NDC in 2019).
After a rapid increase between 2009 and 2018 (around 7%/year), the progression of CO2 emissions from energy uses has stopped. CO2 emissions per capita are among the 15 highest in the world, with around 13 tCO2/cap (2020).
