“To ensure energy security, the company also supplied a total of 1.44 billion liters of gasoline, or 46.30 million liters / day, across the country during the period under review,” a- he indicated.
In the gas sector, the report found that a total of 223.55 billion cubic feet (BCF) of natural gas was produced during the month under review.
He said that translates to an average daily production of 7,220.22 million standard cubic feet per day (mmscfd).
“The gas production figure of 223.55BCF also represents a 4.79% increase over production in December 2020.
“In addition, the average daily supply of natural gas to gas-fired power plants increased by 2.38% to reach 836 mmscfd, or the equivalent of an electricity production of 3,415 MW.
“For the period January 2020 to January 2021, a total of 2,973.01BCF of gas was produced representing an average daily production of 7,585.78 mmscfd during the period.

He said this translates into a total gas supply of 1,428.65 mmscfd in the domestic market and 3,385.57 mmscfd in the export market during the month under review.
