Total Energy Consumption

The country ranks second worldwide in terms of per capita energy consumption (12.6 toe, i.e. 10 times the average for Latin America and the Caribbean). Electricity consumption per capita is approximately 7 680 kWh (2018). This exceptionally high level of energy consumption per capita is explained by the existence of energy-intensive industries (ammonia, methanol, fertilizers and aluminium).

Crude Oil Production

Between 2006 and 2018, oil production fell by 52%, from 8.5 Mt to 4.1 Mt. This rapid decrease is mainly explained by a faster than expected decline in the production of the Angostura field and by the rapid collapse in the production at Trinmar.

The Pointe-a-Pierre refinery closed down in November 2018. Its capacity (168 000 bbl/d) used to exceed the national demand for refined products, allowing Petrotrin to export 70 to 80% of its oil product production. In 2018, exports were at 4.15 Mt.

CO2 Fuel Combustion/CO2 Emissions

In its NDC, the country aims to achieve a 15% GHG emissions reduction by 2030 from a BAU case (reduction of 103 MtCO2eq). Investments of US$2bn are estimated to be required to meet this objective, to be financed both through domestic funds and the international Green Climate Fund. Around 70% of this reduction should be achieved in industry (72 MtCO2eq, for investments evaluated at US$320m), 28% in power generation (29 MtCO2eq, US$945m), and 2% in transport (2.6 MtCO2eq, US$735m).
