ECONOMIC ASPECTS OF REFINERY AND DEEP-WATER PORT LOCATION IN THE UNITED STATES. VOLUME I. REPORT.
The transportation costs of petroleum products from refineries to markets have a more significant effect on the least cost location of deep-water ports than the economies created at the ocean leg of through movement by supertankers. 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. The heuristic DOT model includes transportation costs (1) from ten crude sources to eighteen refining centers in the U.S., and (2) from these refining centers to 484 markets in the U.S. Other versions of the model which include 13 refining districts, 406 markets, 5 crude oil sources, existing product pipeline networks, refinery operating costs, and multiple deep-water port alternatives have also been built.
