Crude oil production

Oil production has remained roughly stable since 2006 at around 11-12 Mt (11.5 Mt in 2016); it had decreased by 30% between 1997 and 2002, from around 18 Mt to 13 Mt. That decrease was mainly due to the falling production of main fields and the decline of reserves. In 2016, Gabon cut its production by 9 000 barrels a day due to an OPEC agreement to limit the production of almost all OPEC ...

CO2 fuel combustion/CO2 emissions

In 2015, Gabon submitted its Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) with the commitment to reduce its GHG emissions by up to 50% by 2025 as compared to a BAU scenario (including subsectors from land use, land use change and forestry (LULUCF)). This is equivalent to an emission level 3% above 2000 levels (without LULUCF), or a 72% increase if LULUCF is excluded.
