(in Southern Europe)



AREA (on): 56,500 km2

OIL PEAK: 1981


Independence from Yugoslavia has had little effect on declining onshore oil production, which peaked back in 1981. Declines are expected to continue.

Conversely gas production is on the increase as Croatia’s offshore potential is exploited near to the border with Italy in the Adriatic Sea and new local onshore markets are also developed. Steady growth in Croatia’s gas production is forecast.



Oil consumption increased up to 2007 but growing imports, accompanied by recessionary effects have quelled demand growth and consumption should remain flat for a decade.

Gas consumption is also increasing. However, with indigenous production rising, the country may be able to avoid importing gas for a few years.





This is a simple forecast - detailed forecasts including offshore and onshore, deep water splits, sedimentary basins and major fields and drilling etc. can be purchased for most countries.
