  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Ministry of Water and Energy is in charge of the design and implementation of the national energy policy.

    Oil provides an important source of income for the country through domestic production and the transit of Chadian crude. Oil accounts for around 50% of export revenues and 25% of...

  • Energy Companies

    Gas:

    Victoria Oil & Gas is developing the Logbaba field, which started producing in 2012. In 2011, RSM Production lost its 32.5% stake due to its failure to pay its share in the development of the field, and in May 2015, Victorria Oil and Gas announced that its 100% owned subsidiary, Gaz du...

  • Energy Supply

    Resources:

    Cameroon has modest oil reserves and more significant gas reserves (27 Mt and 154 bcm, respectively, end 2015). Cameroon has the second greatest hydroelectric potential in Africa: 23 000 MW of technical potential, 40% of which is exploitable under good economic conditions (103 TWh/year). Wood...

  • Energy Prices

    Electricity:

    Electricity pricing is the responsibility of the Government and the Arsel (Electricity Regulation Agency). Within the framework of the concession agreement signed with AES, the price of electricity was to increase by an average of 8% per year during the first 4 years of the concession in order...

  • Energy Consumption

    Total energy consumption per capita is 0.3 toe, of which240 kWh of electricity (2014).

    As in most Sub-Saharan African countries, wood is the most widely used form of energy. Biomass covers 63% of total consumption, more than 70% of final consumption and more than 90% of the needs of the...

  • Issues & Prospects

    Gas:

    The development of the gas reserves and of the uses of LPG, which is likely to be produced from natural gas, is another objective of the energy policy. In the short term, it would make it possible to fight deforestation, and in the long term, to export LPG to Europe.
