    The North Sea.

    And the majority of imported oil comes from Norway.

    I get my oil from supermarkets. Olive oil, vegetable oil. I can only conclude the nation as a whole does the same.

    Norway is where the majority comes from. Followed by our own production and imports from other Western producers
