The Caribbean area embraces almost all aspects of tanker trades, including as it does major crude oil exporters (Venezuela and Mexico), refiners (those in the Islands such as St. Croix, Puerto Rico and the Bahamas operating on imported crudes and those in the Netherlands Antilles operating on domestic and imported crudes), crude oil transhipment terminals (such as Bonaire, Bahamas, Curacao etc), massive refined products exporters and minor products importers. Significant changes are taking place in the Caribbean oil trades resulting from such developments as the rise in Mexican oil exports and the advent of US deepwater terminals (such as LOOP). The study analyses oil movements to and from the Caribbean; investigates terminal and refining facilities and developments in the area; and discusses the significance of the trade volumes and structural trends identified for the employment of the world tanker fleet.
