  • 1. Tunus Summary 2012

2. Facts The Tunisian Republic is located in the northernmost part of Africa bordering the Mediterranean Sea between Algeria and Libya. The upstream oil industry in Tunisia is still modest and upcoming as compared to its neighbouring countries. Oil and Gas are the two major sources of energy requirements in the country accounting for 48.30% and 39% respectively in 2008. The country produced about 81,000 barrels per day of crude oil in 2009. Crude oil production has declined marginally in the past decade. Domestic consumption has increased from 83,000 barrels per day in 1999 to about 107,600 barrels per day in 2009. The country no longer exports crude oil as domestic consumption has risen considerably in recent years. The countrys low refining capacity has led the country to import refined petroleum products to meet its demands. Crude oil reserves in Tunisia increased from 300m bbl in 2000 to 388m bbl in 2008. El Borma, Ashtart and Sidi el Kilani are Tunisias main oil producing fields. Tunisia had around 1.80 trillion cubic feet of proven natural gas reserves in 2008, with about two-thirds located offshore. Natural Gas production in Tunisia has increased from 81.70 bn cu ft in 2000 to 91.30 bn cu ft in 2009. Consumption, on the other hand, increased from 83 bn cu ft in 2000 to 112.60 bn cu ft in 2009. Tunisia does not export natural gas. Miskar and Franig are the two major gas fields in the country. 3. 1.
