Table description


This table shows the supply and consumption of petroleum products as a balance sheet. Petroleum products are e.g. fuels such as LPG, motor gasoline and diesel oil. The balance sheet shows all products for processing or consumption in the Netherlands and transit goods.

Supply is calculated as production plus imports minus exports minus bunkers plus net stock changes. This calculation of the supply results in the amount of petroleum products consumed in the Netherlands in the period concerned.
Consumption is broken down by consumption as feedstock for transformation into other petroleum products and final consumption and other transformations (consumption of petroleum products for transformation into other energy commodities, like electricity).

From 1990 onwards, consumption is broken down by consumption as feedstock for transformation into other petroleum products and final consumption (no energy commodities remain). Up to 1990 only figures on consumption as feedstock for transformation are available.

Also published are the opening stock and closing stock of petroleum products.

Data available:
From 1946

Status of the figures:
All figures from 1946 to December 2017 are definite.
Figures from January 2018 onwards are provisional.

Changes as of 29 September 2020
Provisional figures of July 2020 have been added.

When will new figures be published?
Provisional figures: in the third month after the month under review.
Definite figures: not later than in the following December.

Description topics

Supply of petroleum products
The amount of petroleum products primarily available for consumption in the Netherlands. Supply is calculated as production plus imports minus exports minus bunkers plus net stock changes.
Total supply
The amount of petroleum products primarily available for consumption in the Netherlands.
Production
Production of petroleum products by transforming crude or other petroleum products, e.g. production of motor gasoline by refining crude oil. From 2007 onwards, production excludes products used as re-input. Up to 2007, re-input was included.
Total production
Total production of petroleum products at refineries, the petrochemical industry and wholesale (companies that store or trade petroleum products).
Refineries
Companies that transform crude oil and other feedstocks into useful fossil fuels and other petroleum products. Fuels are LPG, motor gasoline, kerosene and gasoil. Other products are e.g. lubricants and asphalt. The most important step in the refinery is distillation. Crude oil is heated and headed through a column. This process yields several petroleum products such as residual gases at the top of the column and heavy products at the bottom. Up to 2007 the refineries figure included wholesale (companies storing or trading petroleum products).
Petrochemical industry
Companies that transform petroleum products into chemical products. Some other petroleum products become available as a by-products. These come to the market along with petroleum products from refineries. For example the transformation of the chemical product ethylene (a feedstock for plastic) into naphtha and the petroleum product automotive gas delivered to the market for consumption as fuel.
Wholesale
Companies storing or trading petroleum products. In common these companies blend petroleum products just before they are delivered to the market. For example addition of more or less additives to motor gasoline or transport diesel to meet summer or winter specifications. From 2007 onwards wholesale production is published. Up to 2007 the wholesale production was included in the production by refineries.
Imports
Imports of petroleum products.
Exports
Exports of petroleum products.
Bunkers
Delivery of fuels for international shipping and aviation, i.e. ships and aircraft departing from Dutch (air)ports and arriving in foreign (air)ports. In the energy balance sheet bunkers are considered as a form of export and are not included in energy available for consumption in the Netherlands. Aviation bunkers are distinguished from 1978 onwards. Up to 1978 aviation bunkers are included in final consumption.
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 petroleum products
The amount of petroleum products used for transformation into other petroleum products or as final consumption within the Netherlands.
Total consumption
Total consumption of petroleum products.
For transformation in petroleum products
The amount of petroleum products used as feedstock for transformation into other petroleum products, e.g. distillation of fuel oil in a refinery. Or products are blended into other products, like propane and butane into automotive gas.
Total for transformation in oil products
Total input of petroleum products as feedstock for transformation at refineries, petrochemical industry and wholesale (companies storing and trading petroleum products).
Refineries
Companies that transform crude oil and other feedstocks into useful fossil fuels and other petroleum products. Fuels are LPG, motor gasoline, kerosene and gasoil. Other products are e.g. lubricants and asphalt. The most important step in the refinery is distillation. Crude oil is heated and headed through a column. This process yields several petroleum products such as residual gases at the top of the column and heavy products at the bottom. Up to 2007 the refineries figure included wholesale (companies storing or trading petroleum products).
Petrochemical industry
Companies that transform petroleum products into chemical products. Some other petroleum products become available as a by-products. These come to the market along with petroleum products from refineries. For example the transformation of the chemical product ethylene (a feedstock for plastic) into naphtha and the petroleum product automotive gas delivered to the market for consumption as fuel.
Wholesale
Companies storing or trading petroleum products. In common they blend petroleum products just before they are delivered to the market. For example addition of more or less additives to motor gasoline or transport diesel to meet summer or winter specifications. From 2007 onwards wholesale production is published. Up to 2007 the wholesale production was included in the production by refineries.
Final consumption; other transformations
Final consumption is consumption then no other energy commodity remains. This may be final consumption for energy purposes, such as motor gasoline in cars, or final consumption for non-energy purposes, such as naphtha in the petrochemical industry. Consumption for other transformations is input for transformations of petroleum products into other energy commodities, e.g. input of residual gases in a power plant.
Total final consumption, other transform
Total consumption as feedstock, mainly in petrochemical industry, as fuel for refineries and petrochemical industry, for transportation and other consumption and as input for transformation in electricity.
Refineries, fuel
Consumption used to support business activities. Includes input for electricity and heat production to be sold. Mainly consumption of residual products released from refinery, such as refinery gas and fuel oil.
Petrochemical industry, fuel
Consumption used to support business activities, such as heating boilers. Includes input for electricity and heat production to be sold. Mainly consumption of residual products released from the assimilation process, such as chemical waste gas. Petrochemical industry contains companies which transform petroleum products into chemical products.
Petrochemical industry, feedstocks
Final consumption for non-energy purposes in the petrochemical industry. This means petroleum is transformed into a chemical product, such as feedstocks for plastics. Petrochemical industry contains companies that transform petroleum products into chemical products.
Fishing
Petroleum products, like gas oil and fuel oil, burned for the propulsion of fishing ships. These are gas/diesel oil and fuel oil.

Up to 1995 this sheet item includes consumption of gasoil of sea fishing and piloting.
For the period 1956-1981 the sheet item 'Transportation and other' includes all consumption of gasoil of sea fishing and piloting.
From 1955 to 1994 the sheet item 'Transportation and other' includes all consumption of inland fishing.
For the period 1955-2006 the sheet item 'Transportation and other' includes consumption of fuel oil of sea fishing.
Transportation and other
The amount of petroleum products delivered to retail and other final consumers. Excludes deliveries for bunkers (international shipping and aviation). Most petroleum products are consumed as motor fuel for transportation. There also are other products with another destination, e.g. bitumen (asphalt) for roof covering, white spirits as thinner in paint or lubricant oil in equipment and motors.
Stock of petroleum products
The amount of the petroleum product stored. It is the amount stored at refineries, the petrochemical industry and wholesale (companies storing and trading petroleum products). Excluded are stocks at petrol stations and other final consumers.
Opening stock
The opening amount of stock of petroleum products.
Closing stock
The closing amount of stock of petroleum products.
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.
