Table description


This table shows the supply and the consumption of crude as a balance sheet. Crude include crude oil, natural gas liquids and additives (intermediates for motor gasoline and transport diesel). Separate balance sheet items are available for feedstocks for processing in the Netherlands and for feedstocks for the transit trade. The difference between the two flows is that import tax is paid for products destined for production in the Netherlands, while it is not paid for transit goods.

Supply is calculated as indigenous production plus production from crude oil plus production from other sources plus imports minus exports plus net stock changes. This calculation of the supply results in the amount of crude consumed in the period concerned.

From 2007 onwards, consumption is broken down by consumption as feedstock for transformation into other petroleum products and final consumption (no energy commodities remain). Up to 2007 only figures on consumption as feedstock for transformation are available.

Data available:
From 1944 up to and including 2015

Status of the figures:
All figures from 1944 to December 2013 are definite.
Figures from January 2014 onwards are provisional.

Changes as of 20 May 2016
None, this table has been stopped. For more information see section 3.

When will new figures be published?
Not applicable.

Description topics

Supply of crude
The amount of crude primarily available for consumption in the Netherlands. Supply is calculated as indigenous production plus production from crude oil plus production from other sources plus imports minus exports plus net stock changes. This calculation of the supply results in the amount of crude consumed in the period concerned.
Total supply
The amount of crude primarily available for consumption in the Netherlands.
Indigenous production
Extraction of energy from nature, with no input of an energy commodity. Extraction of crude oil and natural gas liquids from nature, on land and off shore in the Dutch part of the North Sea.
Production from crude oil
The amount of energy transformed from another petroleum product. Only fossil additives can produced from petroleum products.
Production from other sources
Energy from non-petroleum products like biofuels for road transport.

The figure is the sum of Production + imports - exports + inlands delivery.
Imports
Imports of crude.
Exports
Exports of crude.
Stock change
Changes in stock are calculated as opening stock minus closing stock, in accordance with international energy statistics guidelines. A positive figure means that stocks have decreased, and the supply of energy has thus increased. A negative figure means the opposite: an increase in stocks and a decrease in consumption.
Consumption of crude
The amount of crude delivered to consumers in the Netherlands.
Total consumption
Total consumption of crude for processing or final consumption.
Processing
Crude and petroleum products input for the production of petroleum products. Crude oil and natural gas liquids are used as feedstocks in refineries. Additives are blended into other petroleum products, like motor gasoline and transport diesel.
Final consumption
Final consumption of energy. No useful energy commodity remains. From 2007 onwards figures are available for final consumption of natural gas liquids, i.e. final consumption for the production of non-energy products, like plastics.
Stock of crude
Opening and closing stock of the amount of crude in the Netherlands.
Opening stock
The opening amount of stock of crude.
Closing stock
The closing amount of stock of crude.
Stock change
Changes in stock are calculated as opening stock minus closing stock, in accordance with international energy statistics guidelines. A positive figure means that stocks have decreased, and the supply of energy has thus increased. A negative figure means the opposite: an increase in stocks and a decrease in consumption.
