Table description


This table shows the supply and consumption of petroleum products and crudes as a balance sheet.

Petroleum products include the fuels LPG, motor gasoline and diesel oil. The balance includes products used for processing or consumption in the Netherlands as well as those intended for transit.

Crudes are 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.

The following standard densities are used to convert from kg to liters of Gasoline, Diesel and Autogas delivered including excise duty:
Petrol 0.75 kg/l, Diesel 0.836 kg/l and LPG 0.535 kg/l.

Description topics

Supply
The amount of crudes and petroleum products that has primarily become available for consumption in the Netherlands. Supply is calculated as indigenous production plus other sources plus production plus imports minus exports minus bunkers plus stock changes. This calculation of the supply results in the amount of crudes and petroleum products consumed in the Netherlands in the period concerned.
Total supply
Total of the amount of petroleum crudes and petroleum products that have primarily become available for consumption in the Netherlands.
Indigenous production
Extraction of energy commodities from nature. Crude oil and natural gas liquids (NGL) are extracted from the bottom on shore or in the Dutch part of the North Sea.
Other sources
This item is the calculation of indigenous production plus imports minus exports of bioadditives.
Production
Production of petroleum products by transforming crude or other petroleum products, e.g. production of motor gasoline by refining crude oil.
Total production
Total production of petroleum products at the refineries, the petrochemical industry and other oil industry.

Regarding other petroleum products, the underlying productions do not count in the total production, because there is also production from transformation of other companies that is not visible in the broken down items.
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.
Petrochemical industry
Companies that transform petroleum products into chemical products. Some other petroleum products become available as a by-product. 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.
Other oil industry
Companies storing or trading petroleum products. In common these companies blend petroleum products just before they are delivered to the market. For example addition more or less additives to motor gasoline or transport diesel to meet summer or winter specifications.
Imports
Imports of crudes and petroleum products.
Total imports
Inland
Receipts of crudes and petroleum products from abroad directly to the inland.
Bonded area
Receipts of crudes and petroleum products from abroad to the bonded area. Bonded area is a fiscal place for goods for transit trade.
Exports
Exports of crudes and petroleum products.
Total exports
Inland
Exports of crudes and petroleum products from the Netherlands to abroad.
Bonded area
Exports of crudes and petroleum products from bonded area to abroad, also called transit trade.
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.
Total bunkers
International marine
Delivery of fuels for international shipping. This concerns ships departing from Dutch ports and arriving in / at foreign ports. The post bunkers are seen in the energy balance as a form of export. The fuel will not be available for consumption in the Netherlands.
International inland shipping
Delivery of fuels for international inland shipping. This concerns ships in Dutch ports and arriving in / at foreign ports. The post bunkers are seen in the energy balance as a form of export. The fuel will not be available for consumption in the Netherlands.
International aviation
Delivery of fuels for international aviation. This concerns aircraft departing from Dutch airports and arriving at / at foreign airports. The post bunkers are seen in the energy balance as a form of export. The fuel will not be available for consumption in the Netherlands.
Stock changes
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 thus increased. A negative figure means the opposite: an increase in stocks and a decrease in consumption.
Consumption
The amount of crudes and petroleum products used for transformation into other petroleum products or as final consumption within the national borders of the Netherlands.
Total consumption
For transformation in products
The amount of crudes and 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
Refineries
Refinery petroleum transformation. A refinery is a company that transforms 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.
Petrochemical industry
Petrochemical company petroleum transformation. A petrochemical company is a company that transforms petroleum products into chemical products. Some other petroleum products become available as a by-product. 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.
Other oil industry
Other oil companies petroleum transformation. An other oil company is a company that stores or trades petroleum products. In common these companies blend petroleum products just before they are delivered to the market. For example addition more or less additives to motor gasoline or transport diesel to meet summer or winter specifications.
Other transformations
Input of petroleum products to produce other energy commodities, like electricity or heat.


Final consumption
Final consumption of energy. No useful energy commodity remains. This can be final energy consumption, like motor gasoline in a car, or non energy use, like naphtha in petrochemical industry.

In this table final consumption includes also own consumption of refineries, while this is 'Own consumption' in the Energy balance sheet.
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.
Final energy consumption
Consumption used to support business activities of the petrochemical plant, such as heat for steam cracking. 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.
