FORECASTING MARINE TRANSPORTATION REQUIREMENTS FOR IMPORTS TO MIDDLE EASTERN OIL-EXPORTING COUNTRIES: 1976-1985. VOLUME 2. RESEARCH FINDINGS
The transport systems, particularly ports and related infrastructure, of each OPEC country are described in detail. Planned and probable expansions are compared to the handling requirements given by the trade forecasts. Direct maritime routes and mixed-mode routes using transit ports and overland connections are employed to assess probable future congestion conditions. The report includes a comparison of freight rates from U.S. and North European ports. Prospects for the Suez Canal are also examined. Volume II presents the basic research findings for each OPEC country and for the countries as a group, with emphasis on trade with the United States.
