Oil statistics

Data on UK production, trade and demand of oil by sector, including crude oil and natural gas liquids, and products including transport fuels.

Oil statistics examine trends in crude oil and petroleum products, covering:

  • production 
  • trade (imports and exports)
  • consumption 
  • stocks 

Our tables in Energy Trends and the Digest of UK Energy Statistics (DUKES) include commentary explaining key trends. The chapters provide a more in-depth review for the most recent period.
