Country Analysis Brief Overview
- Congo's first deepwater field came online in 2008 and helped to reverse declining oil production.
- Although Congo holds the fifth largest proven natural gas reserves in Sub-Saharan Africa, only a small portion is marketed, as a vast majority is reinjected or flared.
- New gas-fired power stations have increased electricity capacity in Point-Noire, one of Congo's most populous areas, since 2010. However, the country still relies on electricity imports to satisfy growing power demand in urban hubs.
