All language versions of the Energy Export Databrowser are now using the latest version of the BP Statistical Review:
A few of the stories found in the data include:
1) Oil Consumption in Greece
As the Greek economy falters, balance of trade issues are forcing Greeks to reduce their consumption of expensive, imported oil. Other countries displaying the same rapid consumption decline include Ireland, Portugal and Spain.
2) Net Oil Exports in Argentina
Argentina nationalized their biggest oil company, YPF in May of 2012 on the grounds that it failed to make the investments needed to boost production to keep up with local demand of oil and gas. Already a net importer of natural gas, Argentina just last year reached zero net exports of oil.
3) Germany Continues Trend away from Fossil Fuels
German adoption of wind and solar power (not shown) along with improved efficiency are bringing total energy consumption from fossil fuels down to levels not seen since the 1960′s.
