This study for Congress was required by Section 1004 of the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA 90). The study analyzes the relative environmental and operational risks of the four principal modes for waterborne delivery of crude oil to U.S. ports: direct vessel deliveries, lightering, deepwater ports, and off-shore mooring stations. Detailed descriptions of these modes are presented. The study also includes 1986-1990 crude oil casualty and import data for Gulf coast ports.
