TABLE-Germany's oil import bill drops 37 pct yr/yr in Jan-April

FRANKFURT, June 8 (Reuters) - Germany spent 11.1 billion
euros ($12.36 billion) on crude oil imports in the first four
months of 2015, down 36.6 percent from a year earlier due to
lower prices, data released by the BAFA foreign trade office
showed.
    Russia supplied 34.7 percent of the total, 27.4 percent came
from the British and Norwegian North Sea and 17.3 percent was
from OPEC members, BAFA said.
    Russia supplied 36.8 percent of German imports a year ago,
showing there has been relatively little change, despite the
Ukraine crisis and European Commission calls for EU members to
diversify away from Russian energy imports.
