Crude oil production

Apart from a marginal production of around 70 kt (75 kt in 2016), Lithuania imports all its crude oil (9.1 Mt in 2016), mainly from Russia. It is refined at the Mazeikiai refinery which has a total capacity of 15 Mt/year and which operates at around 60% of its capacity (8 Mt/year). The country...

Oil products consumption

Lithuanian oil consumption has remained broadly stable at around 2.5 Mt since 2000 (despite a 14% fall in 2009). It had increased slightly between 2003 and 2008, after nearly halving between 1992 and 2002. In 2016, oil product consumption rose by 6.7% to 2.6 Mt.

Natural gas consumption

Since 2012, natural gas consumption has been falling rapidly (-9.1%/year), due to stronger competition from cheaper fuels such as low-sulphur heavy fuel oil or gas oil, higher share of biomass in heat production and mild weather. In 2016, gas consumption contracted again by 11% (-27% in power...

Coal consumption

Coal consumption is marginal (about 3% of the country's total energy consumption), although it has increased slightly since 2001.

Industry absorbs 43% of the consumption (mainly non-metallic minerals), while the residential-services sector accounts for 53% (2016).

Power consumption

Electricity demand increased strongly between 2000 and 2008 (+4.6%, on average). It has increased much more slowly since 2010, by 1.2%/year until 2015, and grew by 4.8% in 2016 to 11 TWh.



Renewable in % electricity production

In 2008 Lithuania, under its National Renewable Energy Action Plan, adopted a target of 23% for the share of renewables in final energy consumption by 2020 (10% of transport consumption, 39% of heating consumption, and 21% of electricity generation), in line with the target set by the European...
