OIL IN TRANSPORTATION-- ADVERSE IMPACT ON THE SEA

In the cycle from production to consumption, liquid cargo is mostly transported by sea. Optimization of tanker dimensions since the 1960s has required construction of ever bigger vessels. Today, liquid cargo makes up almost 50% of all ocean cargo. The transport of such staggering amounts is very complex from both the aspect of general safety during navigation and in operations at the terminal. This paper discusses the potential adverse impacts posed to the marine environment and ecosystem by the ocean-bound transport of oil.
