RESIDUUM AND RESIDUAL FUEL OIL SUPPLY AND DEMAND IN THE UNITED STATES, 1973-1985

The report gives results of a study of the supply and demand of petroleum residuum in the United States, now and in 1985, with particular emphasis on residual fuel oil. The report details the historical residuum balance, then examines the major factors which affect the supply and demand. Factors include governmental influences, foreign factors, energy production trends, demand trends, technological innovations in sulfur removal processes, and residual fuel oil handling problems. Based on these factors, a potential 1985 residuum supply scenario is formulated and discussed. The sensitivity of the future scenario to the influence of the various factors is also examined.
