Analysis - Energy Sector Highlights Last updated: November 2016

  • Poland is the second largest coal producer in Europe, behind Germany. Poland produces small quantities of crude oil and natural gas and it is a net oil and natural gas importer. The country contains shale resources, but companies exploring for economically recoverable volumes have had disappointing results.
  • In 2015, Poland’s total primary energy consumption was 3.8 quadrillion Btu. Coal accounted for 52% of consumption, with the remainder consumed as oil (26%), natural gas (16%), and renewable energy sources (5%), according to the 2016 BP Statistical Review of World Energy.
  • In 2015, Poland consumed about 540,000 barrels per day (b/d) of liquid fuels.
  • Poland imported more than 95% of the crude oil it processed in 2014. Most of its crude imports come from Russia via the Druzhba pipeline. The country has two large refineries, with a total crude distillation capacity of 493,000 b/d as of January 1, 2016, according to Oil & Gas Journal.
  • Poland is a net exporter of petroleum products. It exports significant volumes of motor gasoline and heavy fuel oil, however it also imports significant volumes of diesel and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG).
