Crude oil and natural gas supply countries to the United Kingdom (UK) 2019

Norway is the main supplier of both crude oil and natural gas for the United Kingdom. In 2019, some 17.5 million metric tons of crude oil and 1.7 million metric tons of natural gas were imported from Norway. This is significantly higher than the amount imported from the second entry – the United States. Algeria, Russia and Nigeria round out the top five origin countries, with Russia being the only other supplier of natural gas to the UK, as this is reliant on pipeline infrastructure. That year, the United Kingdom imported approximately 46.9 million metric tons of crude oil and natural gas liquids.

Leading export destinations

As an exporter, the UK sold more crude oil to the Netherlands than any other country. In 2018, exports to the Benelux country reached 16.8 million metric tons. However, this figure also includes crude oil volumes meant for transshipment or in transit to other destinations, like Belgium and Germany. Norway also imported some 1.14 million metric tons of crude oil from the UK.

Production of crude oil

In 2018, the UK produced nearly 47.6 million metric tons of crude oil. This was the highest figure since 2011 and an increase of 21 percent compared to the low of 37.5 million metric tons recorded in 2014.
