This paper provides an overview of EITI reporting by state-owned, National Oil Companies (NOC) and oil traders. It sets out the importance of transparency and accountability in the “first trade” i.e. the sale of oil by NOC to oil trading companies. In many resource-rich countries, the largest revenue streams accruing to government are a share of production, received “in-kind” rather than in cash.

The Source book is the predecessor to the EITI Rules and eventually the EITI Standard

It is the first EITI guide to implementation.

In 2005, the EITI published the EITI Source Book to guide countries wishing to implement the EITI. The source book did not include any requirements, but rather indicated key issues that need to be addressed in order to ensure comprehensive and reliable reporting. The Source Book contains examples of oil and gas and mining reporting templates.
