  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    Congo is located in Sub-Saharan Africa, and is bordered by Gabon, Cameroon, the Central African Republic and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Its capital city is called Brazzaville. Its main resources are hydrocarbons, wood and minerals.

    The Ministry of Mines, Energy and Hydraulics defines the energy policy and manages the country's oil and gas resources.

    The ...

  • Energy Companies


    Gas-Congo (1/3 Total, 1/3 Agip) is in charge of the exploitation and development of the country's natural gas resources.

    Eni is the leading natural gas producer in Congo.

  • Energy Supply


    The country has relatively large reserves of hydrocarbons (218 Mt of oil and 112 bcm of gas end of 2015) and a hydroelectric potential of 2 600 MW. The hydrocarbon reserves are increasing substantially (they have doubled compared to the early 90s).

    About 2/3 of the tropical forest (covering 60% of the surface area) are economically exploitable. The potential is estimated at 1.8 Mt.

  • Energy Consumption

    Energy consumption per inhabitant is 0.5 toe (0.2 toe without biomass), including 160 kWh of electricity (2015).

    Total consumption is distributed between biomass (57%), oil products (33%), gas (7%) and electricity (3%) (2015).

    The commercial energies are essentially consumed in Brazzaville and Pointe-Noire (90% for electricity).
