Time spent in loading, discharging, proceeding in ballast, gas-freeing and cleaning, and time out of service for repairing, survey and hull maintenance, are examined as they affect the cost of crude oil transport. The coordination of effort between designer, owner and subcontractor to assure proper facilities, equipment and manpower utilization in running maintenance, tank cleaning and disposal of contaminated slop, is described. Alternative methods of tank cleaning are weighted. Typical costs are given for withdrawal from service safely to clean and paint. Methods of reducing corrosion and fouling are discussed.
