The purpose of this work is to assess the costs, benefits, feasibility and likelihood of an offshore oil terminal serving the East Coast of the United States. For the near term, the study has concluded that a deepwater port for crude petroleum imports is technically feasible and environmentally beneficial and under certain conditions, economically feasible. It was not possible, however, to predict whether such a facility would be built, due to the uncertainty of some of the economic factors.
