Total Energy Consumption
Per capita consumption is 4.6 toe, with electricity accounting for around 2 700 kWh in 2018.
Total energy consumption increased rapidly from 2000 to 2015 (4.2%/year, on average) and has remained stable since then (27 Mtoe in 2018). Natural gas represents 75% of that consumption and oil 25%.

Crude Oil Production
The country's oil production is low (11 Mt in 2018) and increased only slightly over the last decade.
The country has a refining capacity of 297 000 bbl/d, distributed over 3 refineries (Chardzhou, 120 500 bbl/d, Türkmenbaşy/Krasnovodsk, 116 500 bbl/d, and Okarem, 60 000 bbl/d, commissioned in 2018).
The country is a net exporter of oil products. Oil exports decreased sharply after 2015 from 6 Mt to 3.5 Mt in 2018. They increased rapidly between 2010 and 2015, by 8.4%/year.
