* These figures represent the total amounts of gasolene derived from natural gas at the well-head. Of these amounts a portion is sold locally as “petrol’ and the remainder is mixed with the crude petroleum and sent to the refineries. The figures given in the two columns, therefore, together represent the total 'raw products' ob. tained. These remarks apply to the similar totals quoted in previous Records.
