We are revising our estimate of UK dispatches (exports to EU) of Crude Oil in 2012. This is due to the discovery of duplicated trade which has now been corrected in line with our revision policy to provisional data. Our revisions policy can be found here.
The reductions in 2012 amount to £1,638m. This is divided between four partner EU Member States:
- £926m less Oil dispatched to the Netherlands;
- £578m less Oil dispatched to Germany;
- £92m less Oil dispatched to France;
- £42 less Oil dispatched to Sweden.
This is contained within the harmonised system commodity chapter HS2 27 (Mineral fuels, mineral oils and products of their distillation; bituminous substances; mineral waxes). Specifically commodity code 2709 0090.
The interactive data tables have been updated accordingly.
