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
Motor fuels; sales in petajoules, weight and volume, 1946 - April 2021

See section 3.

Data available:
From January 2015

Status of the figures:
All figures from January 2015 to December 2019 are definite.
Figures from January 2020 onwards are provisional.

Changes as of April 29th 2022:
Provisional figures for February 2022 has been added.

The other input and other production of the Petrochemicals are netted in mass to 0, previously in PJs. The production and the self-consumption of residual gases at the Refineries have increased due to the late figures of a Refinery.

Changes as of 16 December 2021
The indigenous production of other petroleum products has been added for all reporting periods. As a result, the total production of other petroleum products has decreased and that total production now corresponds to the production at refineries, the petrochemical industry and other oil companies.
Definite figures of 2019 have been added.

Changes as of September 14, 2021
Data for the topics Transport final energy consumption Total, Road transport, Rail transport, Domestic navigation, Domestic aviation and Other consumers will be published with 2 decimals.

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

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.
Imports
Imports of crudes and petroleum products.
Inland
Receipts of crudes and petroleum products from abroad directly to the inland.
Exports
Exports of crudes and petroleum products.
Inland
Exports of crudes and petroleum products from the Netherlands to abroad.
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.
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.
Bonded area movement
Goods flow from bonded area to the inland for which no excise and import duties have been paid.
Bonded area to inland
Foreign goods from bonded area to inland for processing and use.
Stocks
The amount of crudes and petroleum products stored in the Netherlands at the beginning and the end of the reporting period.
Opening stocks
The amount of crudes and petroleum products stored at the beginning of the reporting period.
Inland
Opening stock in the inland.
Closing stocks
The amount of crudes and petroleum products stored at the end of the reporting period.
Inland
Closing stock in the inland.
Total Obligated stocks (WVA)
Mandatory stock of crudes and petroleum products held under the law for strategic oil stocks, in Dutch: ‘Wet Voorraadvorming Aardolieproducten’ (WVA). As an OECD country, the Netherlands is obliged to maintain a strategic amount of oil is case of an emergency or oil crisis.

Figures from 2015 to 2017 are not included in this table.
Obligated stocks (WVA) in NL and abroad
Total mandatory stock of crudes and petroleum products held under the law for strategic oil stocks.

Figures from 2015 to 2017 are not included in this table.
