General Conclusions of a study on "Offshore Terminal System Concepts" completed in September 1972 for the U.S. Maritime Administration are briefly presented. The Northeast U.S. is identified as the area most urgently requiring a deep-water marine terminal to handle crude oil to meet the energy crisis. A conceptual design is presented of a terminal located off the Delaware Bay for trans-shipping crude oil and, later, bulk solids. Economic and environmental comparisons of several alternatives are summarized.
