Crude oil production

Apart from a marginal production of around 80 kt (74 kt in 2015), Lithuania imports all its crude oil (9 Mt in 2015), 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's...

Oil products consumption

After a 14% fall in 2009, the demand for oil products has remained relatively stable at around 2.4 Mt (2014). It had increased slightly between 2003 and 2008, after nearly halving between 1992 and 2002.

Natural gas consumption

Since 2012, natural gas consumption has been declining (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 2015, gas consumption decreased by 5.7% to 2.4 bcm after a 5% reduction in 2014. Gas...

Coal consumption

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

Industry absorbs 44% of the consumption (mainly non-metallic minerals), while the residential-services sector accounts for 47% (2014).

Power consumption

Electricity demand increased strongly between 2000 and 2008 (+4.6%, on average). It has increased much more slowly since 2010, by 1.7%/year until 2015 to 10.3 TWh and returning to its pre-crisis level (2008).



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, in line with the target set by the European Directive. Renewables are expected to make up 10% of transport consumption, 39% of heating...
