HC Deb 13 March 1980 vol 980 c680W
Mr. Hardy

asked the Secretary of State for Energy what volume of North Sea oil was exported through the Rotterdam spot market; and at what prices such sales were made during the last six months of 1979.

Mr. Gray

Some 300,000 tonnes, or 0.8 per cent. of United Kingdom North Sea oil production of 39.7 million tonnes in the second half of 1979 was sold on the spot market, mostly for export. The average price was $36.49 per barrel.
