Crude oil imports to Japan FY 2018, by country

Import volume of crude oil to Japan in fiscal year 2018, by country (in million kiloliters)

by Statista Research Department, last edited Sep 24, 2019
Crude oil imports to Japan FY 2018, by country In fiscal year 2018, Japan’s largest crude oil importer was Saudi Arabia. Japan imported approximately 68 million kiloliters of crude oil from the Middle Eastern nation.
What’s fueling the nation?

While Japan’s share of energy demand is among the highest on a global basis, it has virtually no fossil fuels, making it heavily import dependent for all kinds of fossil fuels. As a consequence, Japan has become one of the largest oil importers in the world, having consumed around 182 million metric tons of oil in 2018.The largest amount of oil comes from OPEC member states in the Middle East.

Future energy trends

Even though oil still accounted for the largest share of primary energy consumption in 2018, Japan’s crude oil imports have hit a record low since 1979. While this is mainly attributed to the shrinking population and slow economic growth, factors such as improved energy efficiency, the increased use of alternative fuels as well as the slight rise in nuclear power output have contributed to the decrease in demand.
