Crude oil production

Sweden does not produce oil. In 2016 Sweden imported 14 Mt of crude oil, mainly from Russia (42%), Norway (24%) and Demark (14%). Sweden is a net exporter of refined products (around 4.6 Mt in 2016), since the country's refining production continuously exceeds its domestic demand.
