Half of Sweden’s crude oil is imported via the Port of Gothenburg. It is then processed into petrol, diesel and a range of other energy products at the three refineries.
Oil and energy products slumped by 6% in 2014. The year began with low refinery margins and a weak storage market but towards the end flows had increased thanks to improved refinery margins and a stronger storage market in the wake of plummeting oil prices.
Around 19.2 million tonnes of oil and energy products were handled during 2014, compared to 20.4 tonnes handled in 2013.
