Crude oil production

Slovakia produces limited amounts of crude oil (0.4 Mt on average since 2013, +24% to 0.5 Mt in 2017), which is used in the petrochemical industry only.

All the imported crude oil comes from Russia through the Druzhba pipeline (5.6 Mt in 2017). The pipeline, with a capacity of 20 Mt/year in the Slovak section, runs through Belarus and Ukraine. Oil is exported to Croatia through the ...

Coal consumption

Coal and lignite consumption declined by an average of 2.6%/year between 2001 and 2016, but increased slightly in 2017 (+3.4%) due to a higher demand from the industrial sector. Coal and lignite consumption from the power sector is falling (-3%/year between 2000 and 2017) due to successive lignite-fired unit closures).
