Crude oil production

Sweden does not produce oil. In 2015 Sweden imported 19 Mt of crude oil, mainly from Russia (44%), Norway (26%) and Demark (13%). Sweden is a net exporter of refined products (around 4.5 Mt in 2014), since the country's refining production continuously exceeds its domestic demand.
