A MESSAGE FROM OUR OIL TSAR

“As you may have gathered from my last communication regarding the January date for Oil ordering, I was still not in tune with the calendar!

ALL order deadlines will be 9am on a Wednesday starting with Wednesday 4th January 2017. Orders will be accepted on the basis that I will place them at the best price I can obtain on the day.

Subsequent dates are:-

February 8th; March 15th; May 17th; July 19th; September 20th; October 18th; November 15th and December 6th.

As usual I will send out reminders a week or so before deadline dates and deadline times will remain 9am on the relevant Wednesday. In general, delivery can usually be expected within 7 working days from the deadline date.

Note that there is no order date in April, June or August. Equally, the reminder in May could be either earlier or only a few days before the deadline as I am trying to plan a holiday in early May!

Best wishes to you all for a Happy Christmas and prosperous New Year.

Mike”
