ECONOMIC ASPECTS OF REFINERY AND DEEP-WATER PORT LOCATION IN THE UNITED STATES. VOLUME III, D-G

In response to growing interest in energy supply problems, the Department of Transportation developed a model to study the impact of inland transportation costs of petroleum products on the least cost location of deep-water ports. Interim results indicate that markets determine where the refineries should be; refinery locations ditate where deep-water ports should be; and deep-water port locations are only partially influenced by the overseas crude oil sources and supertanker economies. The model does not endorse any deep-water port site; it only serves as a tool to aid the decision makers by showing the cost differences between the optimum and suboptimum choices. The model is flexible enough to test alternative scenarios of refinery and deep-water port location.
