§ Mr. Skeet
asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he will give figures for 1981 in barrels a day covering (a) royalty oil sold, (b) British National Oil Corporation's share of equity oil, (c) crude oil derived under participation agreements whether for sale back or otherwise and (d) third party purchases by British National Oil Corporation including oil for the British Gas Corporation.
§ Mr. Gray
These figures would normally first be made available in the annual report and accounts of the British National Oil Corporation published in April. However, the corporation has this year made available advance figures in the briefing pack prepared for the assistance of members of the Standing Committee considering the Oil & Gas (Enterprise) Bill. The figures (in '000 barrels per day) are as follows:
UKCS crude oil '000 barrels per day (a) Royalty in kind 218.7
(b) Equity (net of royalty in kind) 105.8 '000 barrels per day (c) Participation oil including sale back 630.2 (d) Third party 82.2 (non UKCS third party oil 9.1)
