About the transfers made by SNH to the State 

In accordance with its mission, the National Hydrocarbons Corporation (SNH) transfers to the State revenues from the sale of hydrocarbons, after deduction of expenses.

When referring to transfers to the State, two terms are used: transferable balance and transferred balance.

The transferable balance is taken from the Table of Oil Operations, a forecast table of income and expenditure, which is updated at the beginning of each quarter.

An adjustment is made at the end of each quarter to take into account final payments.

Adjustments done in the 4th quarter of a given fiscal year are taken into account in the 1st quarter of the following fiscal year.

Based on this mechanism, there is necessarily either a windfall (too much transferred) or a shortfall (less transferred) charged to the following year.

The balance transferred corresponds to the amount that is effectively transferred during a given fiscal year. These transfers are recorded as revenue in the State Financial Operations Table (TOFE) under the heading "SNH Royalties".
