    The energy sector is under the responsibility of the Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME). UPME (Mining and Energy Planning Unit) is a special administrative unit of MME in charge of coordinating the planning of the sector. It...

  • Energy Supply


    Since 2011, oil production has increased by 2%/year to reach 52 Mt in 2015. Previously, it rose at the very rapid pace of 15%/year between 2007 and 2011 thanks to greater investments in the sector.

    The total capacity of oil pipelines reaches 1.2 mb/d (end of 2014). The OCENSA, Cano Limon...

  • Energy Prices


    The price of gasoline reached US$0.88/l in 2016. The price of diesel was US$0.61/l. A 2008 decree established a fund for the stabilisation of the fuel prices charged to final consumers (FEPC), which has accumulated a large amount of money due to relatively high prices in the country.


  • Energy Consumption

    Per capita consumption is around 0.73 toe and 1 080 kWh of electricity (2015).

    Total energy consumption has increased by 2.6%/year since 2003. It reached 35 Mtoe in 2015.



  • Issues & Prospects


    According to UPME's 2016-2030 Generation-Transmission Development Plan, electricity consumption is expected to increase by 3%/yr by 2030 (+36 TWh). The required additional capacities would range between 4.1 and 5.8 GW, depending on the selected energy sources (around 60% of which would be hydro...
