Increased sale of light heating oils

The deliveries of light heating oils and heating and lighting kerosene rose considerably in October compared with October 2001. The increase might be due to a cold October, and in addition electricity prices have gone up.

The increased deliveries might therefore to some extent be explained by an increased consumption of light heating oils and heating and lighting kerosene among consumers that may switch between electricity and fuel oils.

Deliveries of light heating oils showed a slight decrease during the past 12 months, whereas deliveries of heating and lighting kerosene increased in this period.

Heavy fuel oil

The deliveries of heavy fuel oil in October came to 40 million litres - of which 21 million litres were sold to ship in ocean transport. The sale of heavy fuel oil continued to decrease. In October the decline was 10.4 per cent, and during the past 12 months the deliveries declined by 20.7 per cent.

Total deliveries

The total deliveries of petroleum products totalled 855 million litres in October, a 2.9 decrease compared with October last year. The deliveries for the past 12 months declined by 1.4 per cent compared with the previous 12-month period.

There were 23 delivery days in October 2002 as in October 2001.
