Total Energy Consumption
Total consumption of energy per capita amounts to 5.1 toe (2019), i.e. three times higher than the global average. Per capita electricity consumption reached 6.7 MWh in 2019.

Crude Oil Production
Oil production has remained stable since 2015 (48 Mt in 2019), after a rapid increase from 2009 to 2015 (4.4%/year). This increase resulted from enhanced oil recovery techniques and the development of new fields, in particular the commissioning of the Western Bukha field and the Makhaizna field. 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. By 2030, Oman aims to reach 30% of renewables in power generation.

CO2 Fuel Combustion/CO2 Emissions
In 2019, Oman submitted its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) to UNFCCC. The target for 2030 is to reduce its GHG emissions by 2% compared to a BAU level.
After a rapid increase between 2009 and 2015 (8.6%/year), the progression of CO2 emissions from energy uses has slowed down (2%/year since 2016-). CO2 emissions per capita are among the 15 highest in the world, with around 14 tCO2/cap (2019).
