FORECASTING MARINE TRANSPORTATION REQUIREMENTS FOR IMPORTS TO MIDDLE EASTERN OIL-EXPORTING COUNTRIES: 1976-1985. VOLUME 1. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
The study presents tonnage forecasts of trade between the United States and Middle East OPEC members for 1980 and 1985. OPEC imports are divided into 18 commodity groups and nonpetroleum exports into five groups. Each OPEC member's total trade is considered first and market shares are used to identify U.S. participation. The transport systems, particularly ports and related infrastructure, of each OPEC country are described. Planned and probable expansions are compared to the handling requirements given by the trade forecasts.
