Download as PDF 44280 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 147 / Wednesday, July 30, 2008 / Notices On behalf of the Secretary, the MMS, based on its analysis, has decided at this time to continue the sale of royalty crude oil to eligible refiners. The MMM’s determination is based on the fact that eligible refiners have expressed real concerns about the lack of stable access to the marketplace and the significant volatility of oil prices. Eligible refiners also continue to play a prominent role in providing jet fuel to the U.S. Department of Defense, which makes the eligible refiner oil program an important contributor to national security.
