Proved oil reserves in Europe and Eurasia by country 2010-2019

Oil reserves in Eurasia far outweighed those in Europe, with the vast majority located in Russia, followed by Kazakhstan. In 2019, there were 107.2 billion barrels worth of oil reserves in Russia, which remained stable from the previous year. In comparison, reserves amounted to 8.5 billion in Norway, the largest in Europe.

EU oil production in decline

Since the turn of the century, the volume of oil production in the European Union has declined significantly. During this period, production was at a peak in 2000 at 167.8 million metric tons. By 2019 this had fallen to 72 million metric tons. The United Kingdom is an important oil producer in the EU but has seen its reserves decrease by approximately half since 1995.

Global reserves

  Whilst Russia has the largest oil reserves in Europe and Eurasia, Venezuela and Saudi Arabia have by far the greatest globally. With 48 and 40.9 billion metric tons respectively in 2019, this was a combined share of approximately 34.7 percent of all global oil reserves.
