Dutch term or phrase: op ... na
This is taken from a report into the use of natural gas in the Netherlands.

Het gevolg van deze geschiedenis is dat er voor binnenlandse consumptie twee grosso modo gescheiden netten zijn:
* een net voor laagcalorisch "G-gas", met alle 6 miljoen huishoudens en (tientallen) duizenden commerciële en industriële gasklanten. Deze afnemers worden (op 320 afnemers na) allen door de RNB’s voorzien van G-gas

I'm stuck on the part in brackets "(op 320 afnemers na)". From the context, I would guess that it means "with the exception of" but am not entirely sure.
