Hi - Cambo won't be heavy, rather similar to Lancaster. Light but non-standard. Which somewhat destroys your UK refinery argument.

I've (sic) produced millions of bbls of UK crude and never sold a bbl to the UK

And if you want to get nerdy; most of these bbls were not produced for tax purposes in the UK - when we drill a well consumables are exported beyond the 12 mile line. If unused brought back to a bonded warehouse...

Still pay tax to the Exchequer
