(in Eastern Europe)



AREA (on): 312,700 km2

OIL PEAK: 1909


Oil production in Poland began in 1874 and peaked in 1909 from an area now part of Ukraine. After remaining at very low levels for many years the country has seen increasing production from fields in western Poland as well as new offshore output from the Baltic Sea. However it is forecast that Polandís total oil output will again begin to slowly decline in the coming years.

Polish gas production is more substantial and is forecast to increase from a low in 1999 as more foreign investment has been directed at the country.



Poland is now a member of the European Union and oil consumption, the bulk of which is imported, increased rapidly form 2002 to a peak in 2007. However, consumption is now expected to remain flat.

Gas consumption will begin to rise again after 2009 and imports will steadily increase from Russia.
