Sub-Saharan Africa: Energy > Crude oil stats

Definitions

  • Exports: This entry is the total amount of crude oil exported, in barrels per day (bbl/day).
  • Imports: This entry is the total amount of crude oil imported, in barrels per day (bbl/day).
  • Production: This entry is the total amount of crude oil produced, in barrels per day (bbl/day).
  • Proved reserves: This entry is the stock of proved reserves of crude oil, in barrels (bbl). Proved reserves are those quantities of petroleum which, by analysis of geological and engineering data, can be estimated with a high degree of confidence to be commercially recoverable from a given date forward, from known reservoirs and under current economic conditions.
