Oil & Gas

Petroleum

  • Petroleum production is estimated at about 85000 barils daily.
  • Cameroon is classified as the 7th producer in Africa.
  • Production is currently carried out at 2 onshore sites, Rio del rey and Douala – Campo basin. The production of the last two decades is declining and new oil fields must be put into production in order to avoid a huge drop in oil production.Rio del Rey approximately 7000km at sea produces 9/10 of the national crude production from 55 fields.

Douala / Kribi-Campo: 19000km2 – 3 marginal land fields in production. Potential production areas include: Logone Birni- 270.000km2 -, 125655km2. seismic activities have been observed there. Mamfe: 2400km2 – technical studies on the basin perspectives already carried out. Garoua. 7800km2. 500km2 of seismic activities observed. Technical studies already carried out.
