21 As a general trend, the rise in oil production in most cases is accompanied by the worsening of its quality: crude is getting heavier and its sulfur and minerals contents are on the rise. Although this issue gets a little attention in the press (compared to the quantitative aspects of oil production), this factor is getting increasingly important because it requires more energy and resources to produce and refine oil. , requiring additional hydrogen production and hydrotreatment capacities), and the cost of oil processing is getting higher (which passes on to the higher prices for gasoline, diesel fuel, and other petroleum products).

This trend was exacerbated by a sharp fall in the price of carbon allowances under the EU’s flagship Emission Trading System (ETS) and rising European prices for NG. ) [43]. As a result, gas-fired electricity output in Germany fell 16 % in 2012, while coal-fired plants added output by the same amount. In the EU, in 2011, gas-fired generation fell by 17 % and coal-fired generation increased by 11 % [14]. Despite the recent increase in coal usage in Europe, many experts believe that this trend is short-lived and temporary, and is just a matter of the economics of the current energy market.
