Analysis - Energy Sector Highlights Last updated: September 2019

  • Morocco produces marginal amounts of oil, natural gas, and refined petroleum products, and it is a net hydrocarbon importer.
  • In 2017, fossil fuels accounted for more than 80% of Morocco’s electricity generation mix, and renewable energy (wind 9%, hydroelectricity 5%, and solar 1%) accounted for most of the rest.
  • Morocco plans to reduce its dependence on foreign imports by developing renewable energies to meet domestic electricity needs.
  • Morocco is not a significant liquids producer, and total petroleum and other liquids production has never exceeded 5,000 barrels per day (b/d). In 2018, total petroleum and other liquids consumption stood at 286,000 b/d.
  • Morocco has been working to expand its oil storage and distribution capabilities to improve its security of supply. The most recent expansion of its oil storage and distribution facilities occurred in 2012, when Morocco completed construction of the 3.35 million barrel capacity Horizon Tangier terminal. Additional storage and distribution terminals are under development in the port of Jorf Lasfar.
