asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he will list the North Sea oilfields currently on stream: and what has been the offtake from each field each month since the field began production.

Argyll, Auk, Beryl, Brent Claymore, Forties, Montrose and Piper are on stream. The 1977 Digest of United Kingdom Energy Statistics, table 37, page 59, gives 1976 production for the whole year for each field on stream and the aggregate monthly totals for all fields. Energy Trends published by my Department each month gives total production from all fields for the previous month. Month by month totals for individual fields are not available as this information is confidential under the conditions of current licences.
