Equatorial Guinea

OECD Development Centre

Growth in Equatorial Guinea’s gross domestic product (GDP) is estimated to have fallen back to 5.5% in 2012 from 7.7% in 2011 because of a fall in production at the Ceiba- Okouméhed oil complex, which had reached its peak. The fall was partially offset by the exploitation of new fields in Aseng. The main drivers for growth were oil and gas, with manufactured products, services and construction providing a smaller contribution.
