VICTORIA, B.C.
Printed by Don McDiarmid, Printer to the King's Most Excellent Majesty
1951  To His Honour Clarence Wallace, C.B.E.,
Lieutenant-Governor of the Province of British Columbia.
May it please Your Honour:
Sir,—I have the honour to transmit herewith the Report of the Coal and Petroleum
Control Board for the year ended December 31st, 1950.
D. K. PENFOLD,
Acting Chairman,
Coal and Petroleum Control Board.
Victoria, B.C., 1951.  Annual Report of the Coal and Petroleum Control Board
For the Calendar Year Ended December 31st, 1950
During 1950 some 154,790,849 gallons of gasoline were sold in the Province of
British Columbia, according to figures reported to the Board by the various oil companies.
Of this amount, service-stations sold 107,182,686 gallons, an increase over 1949 of some
13,008,465 gallons and an increase over the year 1939 of 64,207,058 gallons. The rise
and decline of gasoline sales covering the years 1939 to 1950 are shown in tables on
page 11.
Some 321 applications for new licences in the petroleum industry were received
during the year, as compared with 348 in 1949. After careful investigation by the Board,
213 of these applicants were granted licences to commence business.
In the coal industry, retail sales were 1,461,014 tons, as compared with 1,567,545
tons in 1949.
LICENCES
The number of licences issued by the Board under Regulation 1, and in force on
January 1st, 1950, totalled 3,815. Of these, 418 were in the coal industry. During the
year, 131 new operators' licences were issued in the petroleum industry and 35 in the
coal industry, following the granting of new licences under section 6 of the " Coal and
Petroleum Products Control Board Act." Various licences were discontinued during
the year, leaving in force as at December 31st, 1950, some 3,936 licences.
The new operators' licences issued during the year under Regulation 1 in the
petroleum industry include a number of licences in connection with new outlets granted

of the Province during the year ended December 31st, 1950, together with comparative
tables showing the amount of coal sold during the years 1945 to 1950:—
