Finland downstream oil long-term outlook

Report summary

Finnish road diesel demand continues to grow in the medium term, whereas gasoline – like most other oil products – remains in structural decline. With a large refining system relative to domestic demand, Finland retains a substantial surplus in oil products and relies on the export market to clear this imbalance. The two domestic oil refineries - Porvoo and Naantali – are both owned by national oil company Neste. Also the market leader in fuel distribution and retail, Neste dominates the inland wholesale market as it effectively sets the ex-refinery product prices for third party fuels marketers. Finland's retail network has been consolidating for several years and it has the highest proportion of automated service stations in Europe at nearly 60% of all sites.
