(in North Africa)



AREA (on): 196,200 km2

OIL PEAK: 1988


Production of oil in Senegal began in 1986 from the Diamniado field, rising to a peak in that year. Other accumulations have been identified both on and offshore and a small volumes of onshore oil began to be produced in 2008. No offshore oil production is expected before 2020.

Some gas was produced from Diamniado in the late 1990s and the country has continued to produce minor quantities from 2002.



Consumption of oil, nearly all of which is imported, is increasing slowly but will drop off by 2016 when higher prices quell demand.

Senegal consumes minor amounts of its indigenous gas.
