MANY VARIABLES GO INTO PLANNING DEEPWATER TERMINAL

Preliminary studies in designing a deepwater oil terminal must take into consideration not only the facilities best suited to a particular location, and, in fact, the precise location itself, but also such varied particulars as the arrival patterns of ships, the types and sizes of cargoes, weather conditions and their effects, shipping fairways, and the impact on the environment. This article briefly explains the various types of deep water terminals available, and their respective advantages and disadvantages, and it also discusses each of the particulars stated previously. These are by no means all of the factors that must be considered, but the authors feel that they do demonstrate physical conditions, operational procedures, and equipment systems that need to be resolved in the design stage of a deep water terminal.
