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.

This table replaces the next tables:

Crude balance sheet; supply, consumption and stock, 1944 - April 2021
Petroleum products balance; supply, consumption and stock, 1946 - April 2021

See section 3.

Data available:
From January 2015

Status of the figures:
- up to and including 2020 definite.
- 2021 are revised provisional.
- 2022 provisional.

Changes as of February 2nd:
Figures about stocks outside of the Netherlands for companies were added for November 2022.

Changes as of January 31st 2023:
Provisional figures for November 2022 have been added.

Changes as of December 15th 2022:
Figures for 2020 are definite.
Figures from 2015 until 2021 have been revised.
The figures for the consumption of Diesel have been revised from 2015 and onwards. The reason for the revision is an improved insight for the consumption in mobile equipment used in construction, agriculture and services. The revision concerns mostly the product diesel and can be noticed through upstream energy commodities higher in the energy product classification. (Total gas and diesel oil, Total petroleum products and Total crudes and petroleum products).
The revision is twofold:
- New data from TNO about the consumption of Diesel in mobile equipment have been incorporated. Therefore the total consumption of energy from other sources is raised with about 10 to 20 percent for each year.
- The method in which statistical differences are handled has been changed. Formerly a statistical difference of -3 percent was assumed on a yearly basis from 2013 onwards, matching old data (until and including 2012) about Diesel for road transportation based on a separate excise rate only used for consumption for road transportation that existed until that time. A negative statistical difference means that measured use in the Netherlands is higher than the inland deliveries. A negative statistical difference solved this inequality by statistically adding an artificial supply. In the new method the statistical difference is eliminated from 2015 onwards and the total energy supply for road transportation is calculated as a remainder: The difference of total of market supplies and supply to other buyers.
The first and second point both influences the final consumption of diesel for road transport which is lowered with an average of somewhat more than 5 percent.


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

Description topics

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.
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.
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.
Non-energy use
Final consumption of petroleum for non-energy purposes, like producing ethylene, propylene, butylene, synthesis gas, aromatics, butadiene and other hydrocarbon–based raw materials in processes such as steam cracking, aromatics plants and steam reforming.
