Oil production has been slightly declining since 2010, from 12.4 Mt to around 10 Mt in 2018. It had decreased by 30% between 1997 and 2002, from around 18 Mt to 13 Mt, due to the falling production of the main fields and the decline of reserves.

CO2 fuel combustion/CO2 emissions

In 2016, Gabon submitted its 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.
