(2)If a participator’s aggregate effective volume for any month, as determined under sub-paragraph (1) above, would exceed his equity production for that month—

(a)his nominated transactions for that month shall be taken to be reduced by cancelling later nominations in priority to earlier ones until the cancellation of the next nominated transaction would produce an aggregate effective volume less than the participator’s equity production; and

(b)the effective volume of the latest remaining nominated transaction shall be taken to be reduced so far as necessary to secure that the aggregate effective volume is equal to the participator’s equity production.

Aggregate nominated proceeds for a monthE+W+S+N.I.

(b)that, in so far as any of the effective volume of oil has not been or is not to be so used or appropriated, that is occasioned by circumstances over which neither the participator nor any company associated with him, as mentioned in paragraph 2(1) above, has (or had at any material time) control;

and if the Board are not so satisfied with respect to any such nominated transaction, the proceeds of that transaction means the market value (determined in accordance with Schedule 3 to the principal Act) of the effective volume of oil, multiplied by the designated fraction for the month in question.]

[F39(2B)In the case of a nominated transaction which is a disposal to which subsection (5A) of section 2 of the principal Act applies, for the amount which, apart from this sub-paragraph, would be the nominated price for the purposes of sub-paragraph (2) above there shall be substituted the amount which, under that subsection, is deemed to be the price received or receivable for the oil in question.]
