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:
This table contains definite figures until 2018 and provisional from January 2019.
Since this table is discontinued, the figures will not become definite.

Changes as of 30 July 2021
None; this table is discontinued.

When will new figures be published?
No longer applicable.

This table is succeeded by 'Crude and petroleum products balance sheet; supply and consumption'. See section 3.

Description topics

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.
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.
