Wine and duty

Mr. Shaw is an oil merchant in a village.
He suddenly fell sick..
So he asked his sons to share the oil barrels equally among them.
In his shop there were 14 barrels full of oil and 14 barrels half full.
There were also 14 empty barrels .
How did the three sons share the oil and  the barrels equally ?
