Gains and Losses shown in trade records: Causes of variation
Variations in loss figures may be explained by:
- increased rates of evaporation arising from
- steeply fluctuating temperatures;
- high winds; and
- changes in operational patterns (e.g. smaller receipt quantities, lower levels in storage tanks, blending innovations):
- accounting tolerances (e.g. 2mm in tank dips):
- an accident dealt with under HCOTEG152000 Accidents in the course of delivery and Accidents in an installation.
