HIGHLIGHTS IN MAURITANIA
After a peak of 65 000 bl/day in 2006, Mauritania’s crude oil production has been decreasing since 2007 to around 11 800 bl/day in 2009, which is far below the field's capacity (75 000 bl/day).
These actions are consistent with Africa’s total energy production which slightly fell by around 2%. Again hydrocarbons producing countries of which Algeria and Nigeria were more largely impacted. Furthermore the net exporting region Africa experienced a cut of 6% in its trade surplus.
