Explanation:
I suspect they mean 'total amount of oil that has been pumped (MAYBE: over a given period of time)' --- that would have the sam sense as 'integrated' [= mathematical sum of something changing over a period of time or other function]

agree  Derek Gill Franßen: I think you may be right, although it is odd to see the words 'integrated' and 'displaced' describing the same object (I thought they were antonyms). I would agree that something that is displaced, is moved from its original position (pumped around). :-)

  -> Thanks, Derek! I don't think we need to worry unduly about semantic niceties here --- the previous translator was clearly blissfully unaware of them! :-))

neutral  Montefiore: What do you mean by the previous translator not aware? Who is the translator? I find your explanation rahter obscure, pardon me:) can you clarify your statement, please?
