THE U.S.-FLAG TANKER FLEET AND DOMESTIC CARRIAGE REQUIREMENTS

The shipping capacity needed to fulfill domestic requirements associated with anticipated Alaskan oil production and requirements during an embargo requiring a withdrawal from the National Strategic Petroleum Reserve can be obtained from a variety of sources. Current assessments clearly suggest that the U.S.-flag fleet alone will be more than adequate to meet these needs. But it is useful to know that beyond this capacity there is a large pool of additional tonnage which may be employed if some unforeseen conditions should conspire to impose demands beyond the capacity of the U.S. fleet.
