Crude oil production

Oil production is increasing moderately (2%/year from 2010 to 2018), reaching 48 Mt in 2018. This increase resulted from enhanced oil recovery techniques and the development of new fields, in particular the commissioning of the Western Bukha field and the Makhaizna field. From 2001 to 2007 oil production declined due to maturing oil fields, dropping from a peak of 50 Mt in 2001 to 38 ...

Renewable in % electricity production

In January 2020, OPWP revised its renewable energy development plan, which now aims to reach 3 GW of renewables by 2025, to cover 16% of the power mix. This is an increase from previous plans, which targeted 10% of renewables by 2025. By 2030, Oman aims to reach 30% of renewable power capacity.

CO2 fuel combustion/CO2 emissions

In 2015, Oman submitted its Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC) to UNFCCC, which has not been ratified yet. The target for 2030 is to reduce its GHG emissions by 2% compared to a BAU level.

After a rapid increase between 2009 and 2015 (8.6%/year), the progression of CO2 emissions from energy uses has slowed down (2%/year over 2015-2018). CO2 emissions per capita are ...
