Crude oil production

Oil production has been slightly decreasing since 2015 to 5 Mt in 2018. It already fell by a factor of nearly 2 between 2005 (8.7 Mt) and 2014 (4.4 Mt). That decrease was due to technical difficulties and upwelling which led to the cessation of production on several fields. Production started in 2003.

The country has 7 oil basins, but the Doba basin is the most important and the most ...

CO2 fuel combustion/CO2 emissions

Chad submitted its first NDC in 2015, with the objective of a 71% reduction of GHG emissions compared to a BAU scenario; this objective is conditional to financial assistance. It corresponds roughly to maintain the amount of emission of 2010 (8.4 MtCO2e), mainly linked to agriculture.

CO2 emissions from fuel combustion seems stabilized around 0.9 MtCO2 despite a strong growth between ...
