Okay, I'm back (From where, is a separate thread) to resume this oily discussion :)I'm really not sure what sort of volume is handled by ship and if there is sufficient east coast refining capacity. Methinks most of it goes by pipeline? I don't know the full answer either. But I think one needs to separate crude oil fromrefined products. I haven't looked at the numbers, but I could see PADD 3 (which includesTexas and Louisiana) being a net exporter on the refined products side. As far as the vessel numbers, IIRC, the number of Jones Act vessels number less than 90.That figure includes ships, barges and ATBs (Articulated Tug Barges). My understanding isthat they are mostly carrying refined products, not crude oil.
