Standard Oil Co. of California is studying the construction of an oil tanker superport of California, midway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, according to J.F. Mayer (Socal) at a recent hearing before the U.S. Corps of Engineers in Oakland. The single-point, offshore mooring system would be located 3 miles offshore in Estero Bay near the site of present local terminal facilities, northwest of San Luis Obispo. The site could serve both northern and southern California from a single location capable of handling tankers up to 200,000 dwt or more. The port would be connected by a submarine line to shore, and a land line would be laid to Socal's Richmond refinery in the San Francisco area.
