About one third to one half of the oil was refined synthetically from coal. The germanGerman term for this kind of refinery plant is "Hydrierwerk". There's a fairly exhaustive article in the germanGerman Wikipedia about it, but unfortunately it hasn't been translated to other languages:

https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deutsches_synthetisches_Benzin

The article says:

  • At the beginning of the war 7 refineries were active (the biggest in Leuna), 3 more were nearly finished.
  • In 1943 twelve refineries existed, in 1944 fifteen.
  • The production had a mamimummaximum in 1943. Due to heavy bombing most of the capacity was destroyed until March 1945.

The Wikipedia article contains a table with production numbers. For example, in 1942 Germany consumed 9,500,000 t (estimated), and produced 4,920,000 t from coal.
