Denmark becomes a net importer of oil

Denmark becomes a net importer of oil

Press Releases   •   Aug 30, 2018 07:00 CEST

2017 was the last year in which Denmark produced more oil than the country consumed. The latest forecast from the Danish Energy Agency shows that from 2018 Denmark is expected to be a net importer of oil. However, Denmark is still expected to remain a net exporter of gas until 2035 - except for a few years where the Tyra facilities are rebuilt.
