Politics has strong say in who benefits from oil. B. Tippee and R.J. Beck. OGJ, 3 April 1995, 93(14), 41--48, 51--53.

New value gauges and where values flow, the trend toward lower government takes upstream, the 12 month declines in state takes, as well as apportioning values are discussed. Suppression of prices, the political dimension, the squeeze felt by OPEC, taxation of products, and values in perspective are examined. Numerous tabulations are presented and discussed.
