PORT COLLECTION AND SEPARATION FACILITIES FOR OILY WASTES. VOLUME VI. IMPACT OF OFFSHORE TERMINALS ON CONTIGUOUS PORTS
The impact of the energy crisis, embargoes and environmental concerns of transportation of crude oil and petroleum products to potential offshore receiving terminals is ascertained. As the proposed refinery construction programs are directly related to offshore terminal construction, the import of the various refinery construction programs on offshore terminals and the movement of produce by product tankers is also analyzed. The various ports on the three coasts are analyzed with respect to sizes of tankers that may be accommodated and a vessel mix is developed. From this mix and the forecast petroleum demand, tanker movement requirements are estimated. These estimates are used to develop four arrival matrices for 1980 and for 1985--for PAD I and PAD III. Three arrival matrices are developed for PAD V over the same period. From these matrices based on assumed enforcement of the 1973 IMCO Convention, the quantities of oily wastes likely to arrive at given ports on the three seacoasts are estimated.
