(2)No election may be made under this section in respect of light gases which are “ethane” as defined in subsection (6)(a) of section 134 of the M1Finance Act 1982 (alternative valuation of ethane used for petrochemical purposes) if the principal purpose for which the gases are being or are to be used is that specified in subsection (2)(b) of the said section 134 (use for petrochemical purposes).

(b)after the expiry of the chargeable period in question, the light gases are disposed of or appropriated as mentioned in subsection (3) above,

the market value of those light gases at the time referred to in paragraph (a) above shall be determined as if they were gases to which the election applies.

(5)Schedule 18 to the M2Finance Act 1982 (which applies to elections under section 134 of that Act relating to ethane used or to be used for petrochemical purposes) shall have effect for supplementing this section but subject to the modifications in Schedule 21 to this Act (in which “the 1982 Schedule” means the said Schedule 18).

(6)This section shall be construed as one with Part I of the principal Act and in this section—

(a)light gases” means oil consisting of gas of which the largest component by volume over any chargeable period is methane or ethane or a combination of those gases and which—

(ii)before being so disposed of or appropriated, is not subjected to initial treatment or is subjected to initial treatment which does not include fractionation;

(b)the principal Act” means the M3Oil Taxation Act 1975; and

(c)the Oil Taxation Acts” means Part I of the principal Act and any enactment which is to be construed as one with that Part.
