The bulletin contains information on historical and recent receipts and clearances, as well as commentary on trends of each oil type and duty rates in place in the United Kingdom.

The data used to compile the oils bulletin comes from two main sources. CECAS provides data on oils receipts. The HO10 Warrants reports, which are based on returns traders make to HMRC, provide information on clearances.
