Total Energy consumption

Consumption per capita was 0.7 toe in 2017. Electricity consumption per capita is relatively low in comparison to neighbouring countries and, after a peak in 2012, decreased in 2016 to levels similar to those in 2010, with 128 kWh/hab.

Total consumption increased rapidly (+3.7%/year) between 2000 and 2012, but its progression has slowed down decreased since then due to severe supply ...

Crude oil production

Oil production has been continually decreasing since a peak of 127 Mt in 2010, bringing it to 96 Mt in 2016. In 2017, it remained stable at 98 Mt. Between 2000 and 2010 it was quite erratic, fluctuating in a range of 100-130 Mt, mainly because of political troubles in the Delta Niger region in the south ("Ogoniland"). In this region, the local community is opposed to the presence of foreign ...

Oil products consumption

Oil product consumption fluctuated around 10-12 Mt since 2000 (11 Mt in 2017). Despite its share decreasing, transport is the main consuming sector with 73% of total oil products consumption, far ahead of the residential-tertiary-agriculture sector (21%) and industry (4%, including non-energy uses).

Power consumption

Electricity consumption increased rapidly between 2000 and 2012 (9.4%/year, on average) and then grew very slowly (+0.8%/year between 2013 and 2017), despite the significant fall in power generation caused by severe gas supply constraints in 2013.

The country's electrification rate is low: 60% of the population has access to electricity (2017).

Renewable in % electricity production

In 2016, the federal government adopted a target to raise the share of renewables in the power mix to 50% by 2020. As target could not be achieve, since this share is less than 20% in 2018, the target has been modified to 10% of renewables in 2025 and now excludes hydro.

In total, the country targets a portfolio of 7.2 GW of renewables by 2020, but this target seems to be very ...

CO2 fuel combustion/CO2 emissions

Nigeria is the sub-Saharan African country with the second highest greenhouse gas emissions after South Africa, mainly because of gas flaring.

In its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC), the country committed to reducing its GHG emissions from 20% to 45% compared to a BAU scenario by 2030.

Measures to reduce emissions in the energy sector include efficiency improvement ...
