SONARA Cameroon: Due to production deficit, the Country imported 618,833 m3 of oil  this year

Basile Atangana Kouna, Cameroon’s minister of water and energy, while reporting his activities to the Senate on December 12, 2017, revealed that the country turned to imports in 2017, to overcome the production deficit of the national refinery company (SONARA).

The minister indicated that Cameroon has imported overall 618,833 m3 of oil products, knowingly, 286,400 m3 of super, 246,000 m3 of gasoline, 63, 535 m3 of DPK (Dual Purpose Kerosene), 6,257 m3 of fuel 1500 and 16,641 m3 of fuel 3500. He explained that 78% of the products were imported by SONARA on the instructions of the presidency.

Between January and September 2017, 71,070 metric tons of domestic gas have been imported; this out of an average total annual quantity of domestic gas’ imports of 90,000 metric tons. This therefore represents a 79% achievement rate over the period. “All the measures have been taken by the ministry of energy and water, in collaboration with organizations and companies under its jurisdiction, to ensure the availability of domestic gas and fuel at the pump, enough to spend the New Year period peacefully”, Basile Atangana Kouna said.
