Nippon Oil Co. Ltd. is constructing a central terminal station (CTS), to be operated by Nippon Oil Staging Terminal Co., offshore in Kagoshima Prefecture, southern Kyushu. The project, to be completed in mid-1976, will accommodate tankers up to 500,000 dwt and have 60 tanks, each of 630,000 bbl capacity. Another CTS being built by Showa Oil Co. and Mitsubishi Oil Co. on Ogishima, offshore near Tokyo, will have 10 million bbl of crude oil storage capacity and will handle tankers up to 300,000 dwt. A third CTS also on Ogishima, will be built by Asia Oil Co. and Toa Oil Co. and operated jointly through Ogishima Crude Storage Co. Ltd. On completion in 1972, it will have about 970,000 bbl of storage capacity and will handle 200,000 dwt or larger tankers through a single-point mooring system. A joint sea berth (but not a CTS, as it has no storage) is being buitl by Keiyo Sea Berth Co. Ltd. on Tokyo Bay for Idemitsu Kosan Co. Ltd., Kyokuto Sekiya Kogyo K.K., Fuji Oil Co., and Maruzen Oil Co. It will handle tankers up to 200,000 dwt. The CTS concept and the policies of the Japan Ministry of International Trade and Industry toward it are discussed.
