Offshore deepwater crude-oil terminals, when compared with other types of terminal facilities being considered for the United States, appear to have favorable benefit/cost ratios and would have the least effect on the ecology of a region. Studies indicate that these facilities are the most economic means available for delivering crude petroleum to meet U.S. needs. Various types of facilities are described, among them offshore piers, multibuoy moorings, and single-point mooring systems. Information is given to show how the final design of the berth is arrived at, and the limitations of each type of berthing system are included in the descriptions.
