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 29 December 2021:
Provisional figures of October 2021 has been added.

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.
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.
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 companies.
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 companies
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.
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.
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.
