Italy: volume of crude oil imported Q1 2018, by country of origin

During the first quarter of 2018, Azerbaijan exported roughly 12.3 million tons of crude oil to Italy, establishing itself as the major crude oil supplier for the country. Iran followed with 9.3 million tons. The amount of crude oil imported from other suppliers was lower, during the first quarter of 2018.  

Dependence on imported fossil fuels

In general, the volume of crude oil imported to Italy decreased over time. Nonetheless, the country is still highly dependent on imports of fossil fuels, especially petroleum and natural gas.  

Major crude oil suppliers

Over the first three quarters of 2018, Azeri Light from Azerbaijan and Arabian Light from Saudi Arabia were the kinds of crude oil mainly imported. Although this may be true, the type of crude oil experiencing the greatest growth in terms of volume imported to Italy between 2017 and 2018 was ES Sider from Libya. Notwithstanding, Middle Eastern countries and some regions formerly belonging to the Soviet Union represent the main suppliers for Italy. On the contrary, the role of African countries as suppliers decreased significantly over time .
