A RE-EXAMINATION: POTENTIAL EFFECTS OF RE-OPENING AND EXPANDING THE SUEZ CANAL ON THE SHIPMENT COST OF CRUDE OIL

In the light of more recent developments in bunker-oil prices, ship acquisition costs, and insurance rates, the authors have re-examined an analysis made by Gribbin in 1975 of the probable economic effects of using the re-opened Suez Canal in its present size and when enlarged as planned. It is concluded that ships that can use the Canal should do so, but that tankers of more than 265,000 dwt suffer serious economic disadvantages.
