COPING WITH DOUBLE HULLS
The Oil Spill Act passed by the U.S. Congress in August 1990 that mandates double hulls and increases liability caps for tankers and tanker barges, will have a significant impact upon the marine transportation industry. The extent of that impact is examined. Aspects discussed include negative views regarding double hulls, possible alternatives that might satisfy the law's requirements, the lack of accurate statistical data about spills and tank barges, double hull construction costs, and insurance premium increases.
