Crude oil production

The country produced 0.5 Mt in 2016. Crude oil imports fell by 10%/year between 2010 (4 Mt) and 2014 (2.4 Mt), mainly due to the low utilisation rate of the refineries, but have recovered since then (3 Mt in 2016). According to preliminary statistics, they grew by 12% in 2017.

The refining capacity of 134 000 bbl/d is spread over two refineries, 44 000 bbl/d Sisak and 90 000 bbl/d ...

CO2 fuel combustion/CO2 emissions

In 2012, Croatia easily reached its Kyoto Protocol target of a 5% reduction in its GHG emissions, as actual emissions were 20% below their 1990 level. Total emissions in 2015 were 25% below the 1990 level at less than 24 Mt.

As an EU Member State, Croatia is committed to cutting GHG emissions by at least 40% in 2030 compared to 1990 levels. Croatia's draft Strategy for Low Emissions ...
