Analysis - Energy Sector Highlights Last updated: June 24, 2015

  • Syria's energy sector is in turmoil because of the ongoing civil conflict that began in the spring of 2011, with oil and natural gas production declining dramatically since then.
  • Syria's oil sector has been in a state of disarray since 2011. Production and exports of crude oil have fallen to nearly zero, and the country is facing supply shortages of refined products.
  • Syria's oil production, which averaged over 400,000 b/d between 2008 and 2010, was less than 25,000 b/d in May 2015.
  • Syria's crude oil exports are assumed to have ceased, and the country is having difficulties importing refined petroleum products.
  • The combined capacity of Syria's two refineries has fallen to roughly half its pre-conflict output.
